Fury is a gripping drama from the Golden Age of Hollywood, released in 1936. Directed by the legendary Fritz Lang, it stars Sylvia Sidney, Spencer Tracy, and Walter Abel. The film tells the story of a young man named Joe Wilson (Tracy), who is mistaken for a criminal and nearly lynched by a mob. As Joe's life hangs in the balance, the authorities must sort out the truth and prevent a tragedy.

The movie opens with Joe Wilson and his fiancee, Katherine Grant (Sidney), driving through the countryside. Joe is a hard-working man who has just accepted a job as a lineman with the power company. As they pass through a small town, they stop at a diner for a meal. There, they witness the lynching of two men who are suspected of kidnapping and murdering a child.

Devastated by what they have seen, Joe and Katherine continue on their way. However, fate intervenes when Joe's car breaks down and he is forced to stay in the town overnight. The next morning, Joe is identified by a witness as one of the kidnappers and is arrested.

Despite his protests of innocence, Joe is thrown into jail while the townspeople gather outside, demanding justice. The situation quickly escalates as the mob begins to take matters into their own hands. The sheriff (Abel) does his best to keep the peace, but he is powerless in the face of the angry mob.

As tensions rise, Katherine's father (played by Walter Brennan) arrives in town to try to secure Joe's release. But even he is unable to sway the mob, and it seems that Joe's fate is sealed.

What follows is a tense and gripping tale of justice, revenge, and redemption. As the town prepares to execute Joe, Katherine races against time to uncover the truth and prove his innocence. She receives help from an unexpected source in the form of a newspaperman (played by Bruce Cabot), who is determined to uncover the truth behind the lynching.

As the clock ticks down, the tension rises to a fever pitch. Will Joe escape his fate and be proven innocent, or will the town's thirst for revenge be too much to overcome?

Fury is a powerful film that explores the dark side of human nature. At its heart is a moral dilemma that is still relevant today: how far can we go to seek justice before we become as bad as the criminals we are trying to punish? With its strong performances, tense atmosphere, and timeless themes, Fury is a classic Hollywood movie that still resonates with audiences today.

Fury is a 1936 crime movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 33 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.8.
