Inherit the Wind (1999)

Movie & Discussion led by local author

 James Morrow

(His other works include Towing Jehovah, Only Begotten Daughter, & The Last Witchfinder)

You may have seen the original (1960) version with Spencer Tracy, Fredric March  and others … how about this update from almost 40 years later?  The remake stars Jack Lemmon and George C. Scott and presents another version of the “1925 Scopes Monkey Trial.”

Most critics didn’t like the new film as much, but James Morrow will enlighten us with contrasts, and with other evolution-related information he gathered while preparing his new novel (Galapagos Regained) about Charles Darwin, which we hope will be published soon.  He promises to make the story worth revisiting.  Please come early and bring a snack or dessert to share … popcorn & coffee provided.
