8. You should have seen the revival on Broadway.

Tony Randall as Henry Drummond/Clarence Darrow and Charles Durning as Matthew Harrison Brady/William Jennings Bryan. Electrifying!

9. I'm embarrassed to say that it's been on my "must see" list

for a long long time, but I've never gotten around to watching it.

10. Watched it last week.

Put it on the Netflix cue months ago. And this is the first time I've ever seen it mentioned here. Trippy.

13. One of the first two tapes I rented for my first VCR (Sanyo Betamax) way back in 1982.

That and "Judgment at Nuremberg" Love both these flicks.

15. it has been remade relatively recently. interestingly enough:

the part of henry drummond was play on broadway by tony randall and in the 1999 movie by jack lemmon.

the part of felix unger, of course, was also played by both actors; randall in the tv version and lemmon in the movie.

17. One of the best movies ever. Spencer Tracy was incredible, but Frederic March ...

while cast in an unsympathetic role as Matthew Harrison Brady, also turned in a remarkable performance.
