Movie Reviews

Unexpected little gem....
Mr. David Mcallister | 07/30/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I had never heard of this Western before and bought it simply because I liked the idea of the story and because I like any type of movie from the late 40's. It was a little gem of a film with great production values
and an aimiable leading man in the shape of Victor Mature.It was nicely photographed in desert locations and the almost silent shoot-out at the end was excellent.Being a long time Western fan I have no hesitation in recommending this as a good example of the genre and it will certainly reward not omly one but repeated viewing,seeing different things to enjoy each time, particularly Mature and Albert Dekker."
Entertaining Western

"FURY AT FURNACE CREEK (1948) is a very entertaining black-and-white western with plenty of action.

Directed by Bruce Humberstone, it stars Victor Mature as a gambler and wayward son of an Army general (Robert Warwick) who has been accused of criminal behavior that led to an Indian massacre at a military fort.

After the general dies of a stroke during his court-martial, Mature, using an assumed name, travels to the nefarious town of Furnace Creek in an effort to prove his father's innocence and clear his name. He goes to work for the town boss (Albert Dekker), who he believes to be responsible for the massacre.

Problems occur with Mature's estranged brother (Glenn Langan) shows up and the two men find they are working a cross purposes.

Coleen Gray, Reginald Gardiner, Fred Clark and Jay Silverheels co-star in this minor gem.

Good Fox Studio Western

"FURY AT FURNACE CREEK is a quality Western, with all sorts of engrossing plot twists, and fine, sharp B&W photography. Victor Mature, an actor I've not always warmed to, turns in a solid performance, seeking justice for his defamed father. Like other 20th C./Fox products of the period, production values are high, and the result is an enjoyable oater that any old cowpoke-lover will like. Recommended."
A Pleasant Surprise...R.H. Lewis

"I have seen just about every western that has ever been made, but I had never had the pleasure of viewing "Fury at Furnace Creek". Victor Mature has always been one of my favorite actors and he really delivers in this outing. If you enjoy a bit of mystery set in a truly enjoyable oater, you won't be disappointed in this gem of a B western."
