These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Inherit the Wind
Misaimed Fandom (implicitly invoked when after he dies in the courtroom, Brady is hailed as a "prophet" by a lady in the crowd based on Drummond's drippingly sarcastic naming of him as such).
Romantic Plot Tumor: The film spends an awful lot of time on Rachel, despite the fact that she's by far the most boring character.
Values Resonance: With the rise of the power of the political Religious Right and later the countering rise of the more assertive New Atheism, this play's conflict between faith and freedom of thought is still powerfully relevant today.
Also, while the Mccarthyism allegory has lost some of its specific relevance, the play's stance against censorship resonates with the prevailing view today about the importance of free speech.
