"The film is based on the play Inherit the wind, which was inspired by the 1925 Scopes Monkey Trial in Dayton, TN. During that trial, then dubbed 'the Trial of the Century, ' Chicago labor lawyer Clarence Darrow (1857-1938) defended teacher John T. Scopes (1900-1970). Scopes was accused of propounding Charles Darwin's theory of evolution in defiance of Tennessee's Butler Law, which prohibited the teaching of any theory other than creationism. The prosecution was led by fundamentalist politician William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925), who was known as 'the Great Commoner.' Bryan ran for United States President three times, in 1896, 1900 and 1908 and served as Secretary of State from 1913-1915. Unlike as depicted in the film, Bryan died not on the day the trial ended but five days later, of complications from diabetes. Another famous figure represented in the play and film versions of the story was H.L. Mencken (1880-1956), a journalist celebrated for his clever wit and iconoclastic liberalism. In the play and film, the names of the major characters are changed from Clarence Darrow to Henry Drummond; William Jennings Bryan to Matthew Harrison Brady; H.L. Mencken to E.K. Hornbeck; and John T. Scopes to Bertram T. Cates. Although the film's version of the trial hewed closely to actual events, in other areas many facts were changed. For example, unlike in the film, the real trial was initiated by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which considered the Butler Law, prohibiting the teaching of evolution in Tennessee classrooms, unconstitutional. When Dayton resident George W. Rappelyea learned of the ACLU's desire to test the law, he convinced Scopes, who rarely even taught evolution, to join the case. According to modern sources, because the theory of evolution was included in the state's textbook, many Tennessee teachers included it in the curriculum. Also in contrast to the film, according to some historians, Darrow wanted Scopes to be found guilty so he could appeal the decision to a higher court. As shown in the film, the trial began on 10 Jul 1925 during an extreme heat wave. The town filled with onlookers and salespeople, and the trial was covered by reporters from around the world. After Scopes was found guilty and fined $100, the decision was overturned on a technicality by a higher court. Although the Butler law was upheld by the court, the trial succeeded in embarrassing its proponents, and no one in the state was ever again prosecuted for defying it. In 1967, the Tennessee courts overturned the law"--AFI catalog, 1951-1960

Known as the 4077 MASH (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital), this group of doctors and nurses were stationed only three miles from the front during the Korean War. As the war drags on the fight to save the incoming wounded that are helicoptered in directly from the front lines becomes hard for everyone. But as much as the gang of the 4077 cares for the wounded soldiers, they also care about each other. And that camaraderie, coupled with a liberal dose of hijinks and hilarity, served to make their tour of duty in Korea an experience none of them would ever forget
