Russell Gleason, the personable and talented son of actors James and Lucille Gleason, is afforded a rare starring role in the bottom-budgeted Fury Below. The story centers on a group of courageous miners, digging away despite innumerable dangers and mishaps. Gleason is cast as mine operator Jim Cole III, who tries his best to run the business despite a considerable lack of experience. During a cave-in, Cole proves his mettle, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with foreman Dorsky (Rex Lease) to rescue the trapped workers. John Merton contributes a fine performance as a fear-crazed driller, while screenwriter Phil Dunham, a graduate of two-reel comedies, essays a bit role as Cole's father.
