2000: Eric Johnson and Roger Leasor in "Inherit the Wind"

2000: Eric Johnson and Roger Leasor in "Inherit the Wind"

The year before this picture was taken, David Stephenson had photographed Roger Leasor in the Bourbon Circuit Court in Paris for "To Kill a Mockingbird." So, another old courtroom photo seemed a bit repetitive for "Inherit the Wind." David put a modern twist on the image by taking Leasor, right, who played Matthew Harrison Brady, and Eric Johnson, who played Henry Drummond, out to Lexington's Fifth-Third building for the portrait. The story focused on Leasor and Johnson's longtime friendship.
