Kramer, Stanley - Inherit The Wind (1960) Rb (Uk Import (Blu-Ray + Dvd))
Releasedatum: 18 mei 2018
Described by Steven Spielberg as one of our great filmmakers, not just for the art and passion he put on screen, but for the impact he has made on the conscience of the world , the films of producer and director Stanley Kramer ( The Defiant Ones, Guess Who s Coming to Dinner) frequently confronted social issues considered too controversial for the major studios. In Inherit the Wind he tackled the creationism vs. evolution debate.
When a teacher in a small Tennessee town is brought to trial for teaching Darwinism, attorney Henry Drummond ( Spencer Tracy, Bad Day at Black Rock) faces off against fundamentalist leader Matthew Harrison Brady ( Frederic March, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) in an explosive battle of beliefs.
Also operating as a searing critique of McCarthyism, Inherit the Wind was nominated for multiple Academy Awards, and is rightfully recognised as one of the most entertaining, and provocative films of its era. Eureka Classics is proud to present Inherit the Wind for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK in a special Dual Format edition.

Original theatrical trailer
Gripping in its old-fashioned way, thanks chiefly to old pro performances from Tracy and March as the rival lawyers and ideologists --Time Out
"Mr. Kramer has wonderfully accomplished not only a graphic fleshing of his theme but he also has got one of the most brilliant and engrossing displays of acting ever witnessed on the screen --The New York Times
Acting legends Spencer Tracy (Judgment at Nuremberg) and Fredric March (The Iceman Cometh) go toe-to-toe in this thrilling recreation of the most titanic courtroom battle of the century. The great Stanley Kramer (On the Beach) directs this masterpiece featuring Gene Kelly (On the Town) 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 Clarence Darrow (Tracy) faces off against fundamentalist leader William Jennings Bryan (March) in a small Tennessee town where a teacher has been brought to trial for teaching Darwinism. The stellar supporting cast includes Dick York, Donna Anderson, Harry Morgan, Claude Akins, Norman Fell and Noah Beery Jr.
