Overview
Two-time Best Actor Oscar® winners* Spencer Tracy and Fredric March go toe-to-toe in this thrilling re-creation of the most titanic courtroom battle of the twentieth century. Garnering four Academy Award® nominations** including Best Actor (Tracy), and featuring Gene Kelly in a rare, critically acclaimed dramatic role, Inherit the Wind is powerful, provocative cinema and a heaping measure of entertainment.
The controversial subject of evolution versus creation causes two polar opposites to engage in one explosive battle of beliefs. Attorney Henry Drummond (Tracy) faces off against fundamentalist leader Matthew Harrison Brady (March) in a small Tennessee town where a teacher has been brought to trial for teaching Darwinism. Let the trial begin...and watch the sparks fly!

* Tracy: Captains Courageous (1937) and Boys Town (1938); March: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931/1932) and The Best Years of Our Lives (1946)
** 1960: Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium, Cinematography (Black & White), Film Editing
