Format:DVD
"Fury" was legendary German director Fritz Lang's first American film. He spoke English, but not well enough at the time to write fluid dialogue, so Lang worked on the script with writer Bartlett Cormack, who did the actual writing. Lang and Cormack based this morality tale of mob psychology and revenge on a story outline by Norman Krasna entitled "Mob Rule", but they incorporated some elements of a real lynching case that had recently occurred in San Jose, California. Lang's intention was to give the film a realistic, documentary feel. "Fury" gives the impression of looking at the laws and customs of the United States through foreign eyes, which, of course, it is, but I don't know if Lang meant that to be so evident.

Joe Wilson (Spencer Tracy) is a man very much in love with his fiancée Katherine (Sylvia Sydney). The couple are eager to get married but don't yet have enough savings. Katherine takes a job in another city to earn more money, while Joe works hard in Chicago. After over a year of this arrangement, Joe has saved enough money to marry Katherine, and he sets out in his new car to join her. But he is intercepted by police en route and arrested on suspicion of being part of a kidnapping gang. He is held in a small town jail pending further investigation, but gossip spreads of the arrest, and an angry mob descends on the jail. When the mob is unable to break into the cells, they burn and dynamite the jail. Joe is thought to have died in the fire. But he escaped and is determined to avenge his attempted murder by seeing that the lynch mob is prosecuted for murder.

"Fury" isn't the least bit subtle in its message. It states its morals outright, but that doesn't undermine its power.

5.0 out of 5 stars FRITZ LANG & SPENCER TRACY: WHAT A TEAM! January 28, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
A very unusual M-G-M film from 1936: because of its theme of social consciousness, it seems much more a likely candidate for Warner Brothers. It's a dilly with an outstanding performance by Tracy as the wrong man: En route to see his fiancee, Katherine (Sylvia Sidney) Joe Wheeler (Spencer Tracy) is arrested as a suspected kidnapper and is jailed pending trial. The evidence against him is strickly circumstantial: he possess a bill from a ransom statement. Then a mob forms around the jail, but Sheriff Ellis (Walter Brennan) manages to disband them & send them home... And that's all I'm going to give out plot-wise. Obviously, there is a whole lot more to this famous film in which Fritz Lang made is American directorial debut. This was Lang's favourite American film - and rightfully so: it demonstrates his directorial genius in wasting NOT A FRAME of film, telling his story with sharp cross-cutting between victims and tormentors, while unravelling the mindless and murderous passion of a mob out of control. Sylvia Sidney is excellent as usual as Katherine: this was her sole role for M-G-M. The film awakened America to what the reality of mob violence means. The original working titles for the film were THE MOB & MOB RULE. For a great companion piece, view the excellent Lang production YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE with Henry Fonda and Sylvia Sidney made the next year, in 1937: it's available on video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Stuff! September 2, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The film begins as a fairly routine romance: Spencer Tracy and Sylvia Sidney fall in love, are forced to separate for a time, and plan their reunion. All goes well until Tracy is arrested on a kidnapping charge. When Tracy is taken to the small-town jail, the local gossip begins. From this point, the film becomes a gritty, raw study of mob violence. The direction and action are relentless. Watching Tracy's reaction to the happenings around him is one of the pleasures of the film. Compare the way the local people act to the recent acts of violence we see today. (Have things changed much?) FURY is powerful, forceful, and memorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lang's First American Film May 19, 2005
Format:DVD
An insightful study of mob rule, director Fritz Lang's "Fury" (1936) still packs a disturbing punch - abetted by excellent performances from Spencer Tracy, Sylvia Sidney and Bruce Cabot. The closing shot was studio-imposed and unnecessary, but does not lessen the film's overall impact. "Fury" remains a powerful, thought-provoking drama. The DVD release includes an excellent commentary track from director Peter Bogdanovich.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sobering and Spectacular Stuff June 29, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Spencer Tracy is spectacular in his role as an innocent man out for revenge on the persumed burned to death by a lynch mob. A lot of good performances come to play in here from Walter Abel as the DA trying to procecute the lynch mob members to Walter Bremmen as the deputy and Edward Ells at the Sheriff torn between his loyalty to the town (ironicy the town that he fights till knocked out to keep from his prisoner) and to the law. It is a moving movie one that isn't well known BUT SHOULD BE. Quite a movie for 1936 and quite an actor is Tracy

4.0 out of 5 stars Fury June 11, 2005
Format:DVD
Innocent man Joe Wilson (Spencer Tracy) is arrested for a crime. There is evidence against him, but before he can receive a fair hearing the local townspeople hear of his arrest, become a mob and storm the jail in which he is being held. Wilson secretly escapes and plots revenge against the members of the lynch mob.

FURY is German director Fritz Lang's first American movie, and it's a powerful opening shot. The first act is a bit slow, perhaps unavoidably, as Lang develops the ordinariness of Wilson and the modest dreams he shares with his girl, Katherine Grant (Sylvia Sidney.) The last act, which commentator Peter Bogdanovich tells us - along with archived commentary testimony from director Lang himself - was a compromise Lang wasn't satisfied with, is happily flawed. The middle third, which delineates the anatomy of the creation of a mob and introduces a truly haunting reappearance by the Tracy character, is extremely powerful. I watched FURY twice in the span of a couple of days, first without and then with the commentary track, and both times I found the mob scenes hard to take. Watching the mob fulfil its destiny is heart wrenching. Tracy, as the broken man overwhelmed with an obsession for revenge is equally powerful.

Although FURY is corny in some spots and showing its age in others, it still packs a wallop. Tracy is very good as the man falsely accused and Sidney is even better as his girlfriend. Highly recommended.
