Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Tropic Fury is one of several Universal programmers built around the box-office appeal of handsome Richard Arlen and ratchet-voiced Andy Devine. Arlen plays private detective Dan Burton, assigned to prevent enemy agents from taking over an old rubber plantation. Aided and abetted by his tubby partner Tiny Andrews (Devine), Burton also rescues heroine Judith Adams (Beverly Roberts) from a horrible fate at the hands of the libidinous head spy (Leonard Mudie). Lupita Tovar, who'd starred in the Spanish-language versions of such early talkies as Dracula and The Cat Creeps, is the obligatory amorous native girl. Some of the fun in watching Tropic Fury can be had by guessing the original sources of the film's innumerable stock shots.
