A Day Of Fury from 1956 is a classic western film that stars Dale Robertson, Mara Corday, and Jock Mahoney. The movie is set in the small town of Lodestone in the American Old West during the 1870s. The town is run by a group of corrupt businessmen who use violence and intimidation to control the townspeople. The main character of the film is a skilled gunslinger named Jagade (played by Robertson) who arrives in town seeking revenge against one of the businessmen, ex-sheriff Ben East (played by Mahoney).

The story begins with East being released from prison after serving time for stealing money from the town's bank. Despite the fact that he has been stripped of his badge and sheriff's authority, East continues to act as the town's de facto lawman. Meanwhile, Jagade has been tracking East for months and has finally caught up with him in Lodestone. Jagade is driven by a personal vendetta against East but is careful not to reveal his intentions to anyone in the town.

As Jagade begins his mission to take down East, he encounters a host of characters who are all affected by the businessman's corrupt rule. These include Kate (played by Corday), a saloon girl who is also East's ex-lover, and an honest banker named Howard (played by William Demarest). Jagade quickly makes enemies of East's associates and throws the town's power structure into chaos. East, meanwhile, attempts to hold onto his position of authority and fend off Jagade's attacks.

The film's narrative is driven by a series of confrontations between Jagade and East's men. These include a tense shootout in the middle of the town's main street and a daring jailbreak as Jagade attempts to free one of his allies from East's custody. Throughout the film, Jagade proves himself to be a skilled and cunning gunslinger who is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve his objectives.

One of the standout aspects of A Day Of Fury is the strong performances from the film's leads. Dale Robertson is excellent as Jagade, bringing a sense of brooding intensity and steely resolve to the character. Jock Mahoney plays the villainous East with a sinister charm, making him both despicable and charismatic. Mara Corday delivers a solid performance as Kate, a complex character who is torn between her loyalty to East and her growing feelings for Jagade.

The film's production values are also impressive, with well-staged action scenes and authentic period costumes and settings. The movie was shot in Technicolor and the visuals are striking, with vivid colors and rich textures throughout.

Overall, A Day Of Fury is a gripping and entertaining western film that will appeal to fans of the genre. The strong performances from the cast, exciting action scenes, and powerful storytelling make it a standout entry in the classic western canon.
