Inherit the Wind
I was going to go see "Beowulf" last night but immediately changed my mind when I found out that "Inherit the Wind" was playing on AMC. I understand that the movie "Inherit the Wind" was suppose to say more about "McCarthyism" than evolution. However, if you go here, to the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law Scopes monkey trial website you will find that the movie actually portrayed many portions of the trial accurately.
This is an interesting website with comments from Marcet Haldeman-Julius who was actually at the trial as well as comments by H.L. Mencken who covered the trial as a reporter. There is even some short trial video if you are willing to download it.
