The all-purpose title Fighting Mad was applied in 1957 to this British melodrama, filmed on location in Canada. Joe Robinson stars as Muscles Tanner, who like John Wayne in The Quiet Man retires after killing a man in the ring. Relocating to Canada, Muscles goes to work for his oil-prospector uncle Beckett Bould. Vowing to keep his fists to himself, Muscles finds that he must revitalize his boxing skills when his uncle is victimized by dishonest landowners. Adrienne Scott supplies a much-needed dose of femininity to the he-man proceedings.
