Directed by the legendary Stanley Kramer, "Inherit the Wind" is based on the real-life story of two attorneys during the mid 1920s, arguing for and against a science teacher accused of the "crime" of teaching Darwin's Theory. Its tagline, "It's all about the monkey trial that rocked America," describes the famous scopes monkey trial on which the movie was based. The film depicts courtroom debates between real-life attorneys Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryon, who are quoted almost verbatim from the transcripts of the trial. Written first as a play by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, the film was brilliantly cast with a star-studded lineup of Hollywood's best and brightest including: Spencer Tracy, Frederic March, Gene Kelly and Dick York.
