49. I did see Inherit The Wind, thanks for providing more facts about the actual case.

I agree about Bryan's words at the end of the trial. Especially his references to mankind being insignificant as individuals and only significant when they 'attach themselves to a cause'. Reminds me of Shakespeare take on the same subject:

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.


So there never was any chance of jail time. I didn't know that. Too bad movies don't stick to facts which are just as interesting as the embellisments.

Thanks again for all the information and the links, which I will read.
