Spencer Tracy, Fredric March, Gene Kelly; Directed by Stanley Kramer Black and White; Not Rated; 117 minutes; 1960

This is a fictionalization of the real-life trial of John T. Scopes in the hot summer of 1925. The trial pitted Darwin’s evolutionary theories against the accepted text of religion. The film is a masterpiece of casting with Spencer Tracy as Clarence Darrow and Fredric March as William Jennings Bryan.
