Somehow I had never seen this movie before and had been meaning to watch it. There was nothing on TV so we were trying out Amazon Prime free movie streaming and stumbled across it. Great movie.
There's some powerful acting and amazing dialogue, some of it taken from the Scopes Monkey Trial transcript according to IMDB. Some of the production and scenes are a little over the top, but so was the whole ridiculous affair. The shocking thing is how little has changed since 1925, or since 1960 when the movie was made.
