Arthouse Legends Podcast

Welcome to Arthouse Legends Podcast - Where High Art and Geek Culture Collide! The goal of this podcast is to take a look at critically acclaimed and well-received films and consider if these films truly deserve their revered status in the cultural zeitguest. Using our combined film knowledge, geeky obsessions and general fart jokes, we take a bite out of much-beloved films, sometimes in love, other times in scorn, but never out-of-bounds.

In 1960, director Stanley Kramer utilized his critical acclaim to make a riveting film based on the Broadway play Inherit the Wind. Pitting Hollywood titans Spencer Tracy and Frederic March against one another in a fictionalized retelling of the Scopes Monkey Trail, the film garnered many Academy Award nominations and made the careers of many who would go on in television. But does the film stand up to the test of time or does the court find it guilty? Eric, Kent and Lobster find out.
