4.0 out of 5 stars Crisis Of Conscience, 12 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inherit The Wind [DVD] (DVD)
Hot on the heels of his `On The Beach', Stanley Kramer brings us `Inherit The Wind'.

This is a fine courtroom drama and much more, pitting theology against science. Filmed in B&W, Spencer Tracy heads an entirely believable cast of characters, who work a witty and insightful script to the full. An unexpected surprise is Gene Kelly featured in a rare straight role as a cynical reporter. The plot is based upon a true case of a US teacher prosecuted for teaching evolution at school (in the 20th century, would you believe).

Kramer's is a timeless movie where the pyrotechnics are exclusively cerebral. If anyone thinks that special-effects and big bangs are needful entertainment, this is the stuff to prove the opposite. I just thought the ending flagged a little.

The DVD supplied by Amazon was satisfactory in all respects. Soundtrack is claimed to have been restored, but is still in original mono. Run-time is given as 123mins, Viewer rating is `U'. There are no extras.

Recommended. Less than [] quid at time of purchase.
