Winter Film Festival: "Inherit the Wind"

3/13/14, 1:30pm - 4:00pm

Come relax at the library and enjoy a Winter Film classic. This week's film 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. MPAA rating: none. Running time: 117 min. There will be a short film discussion after the movie. Recommended for adults.
