Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Per its title, Fire and Steel is set in a busy steel plant in an industrial town. Steelworker hero Jack Perrin is in love with heroine Mary McAllister, but he hasn't a dime to his name. Through hard work and determination, Perrin ends up with a dime to his name. He also dukes it out with the villain high above the traditional vat of molten steel. Critics complained that the film's story didn't make much sense, pointing out that the actors seemed as confused as the audience. For "name" insurance, Burr McIntosh and Cissy Fitzgerald were given top billing, though their contributions to the film were minimal.
