Inherit the Truth is a filmed version of an annual reenactment of the Scopes Trial.[1] The play is performed at the original courthouse in Dayton, Tennessee, where John Scopes was prosecuted in 1925 for breaking a state law which forbade the teaching of a story of origins that contradicted the Biblical account. The film was put together and distributed with assistance from Bryan College, named after the prosecuting attorney of the Scopes trial, William Jennings Bryan.

Inherit the Truth is a rebuttal to the 1955 play Inherit the Wind and a well-known 1960 film adaptation of the drama.[2]
