Not one of Hollywood's leading thespians, burly action star Jack Hoxie plays both father and son in Fighting Fury. When the elder Hoxie is murdered by three disfigured bandits, the son vows vengeance. Taking a job as a ranch hand after discovering one of the suspected killers among the wranglers, the hero manages to bring the three outlaws to justice. Apart from the appearances of former serial queen Helen Holmes as the female ranch owner and Hoxie's love interest and real-life outlaw Al Jennings as a ranch hand, this minor Universal Western benefited from three colorful villains: "Two Finger" Larkin (Fred Kohler), "Scar Face" Denton (Duke R. Lee), and "Crooked Nose" Evans (Hoxie regular Bert De Marc). Interestingly, Kohler was actually missing two fingers, the result of a dynamiting accident.
