Aroview: The Evolutionist vs Creationist debate is encapsulated in this courtroom recreation of the Monkey Trial of the 1920s (a Tennessee schoolteacher was caught teaching Darwinian theory). Something of an acting showcase, with Spencer Tracy and Fredric March as opposing counsels, and a quirky-cast Gene Kelly as the cynical reporter.

2 stars (Good Try) Religious arguments are unsolvable & unending & it is reflected in this film which is too long and therefore loses its impact. Harry Morgan is excellent as the calm judge & provides relief when the 2 leads go over the top. Kelly is a casting mistake.~tubbs
