Inherit the Wind (1960) on the Big Screen

Based on the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial - when an American school teacher was arrested for teaching evolution - a classic blockbuster


Based on the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial - when an American school teacher was arrested for teaching evolution - this all-star Hollywood blockbuster tells the story of a classic showdown between science and religion, God versus Darwin. Or does it? Director Stanley Kramer also had a thing or two to say about free speech and the McCarthy-era persecution of liberals.
Starring Spencer Tracey, Fredric March and Gene Kelly (yes, the dancer!), this film speaks to events around us now as loudly as it did 50 years ago. As usual, the film will be introduced by our resident film boffin, Dr. Joe Cain (UCL Science and Technology Studies). Part of the “Natural Change Season” at the Grant Museum.
