Apparently, Tyrone Power portrayed Ben's father in a prologue where he and his wife were done away with by Ben's uncle, but the scene was cut from the film apparently because the studio wanted to add more suspense. See more »

SON OF FURY is a truly enjoyable if somewhat underrated adventure.Dashing Tyrone Power stars as Benjamin Blake who for many years vows to avenge himself against his cruel and tyrannical uncle(brilliantly portrayed by George Sanders).And so Benjamin sets forth on an adventure to the south seas to find his fortune.He is accompanied by Caleb Green(John Carradine).Together they find more than they expect in a remote pacific island when Ben falls head over heals for a local native girl which he calls Eve(played by the extaordinaraly beautiful Gene Tierney).
This film also features the late Frances Farmer before her tragic ordeals began and also Elsa Lanchester who aids Power and Harry Davenport as Ben's kind hearted grandfather.A great saturday afternoon movie with all the right elements of a classic adventure. One of Tyrone Power's best films even if it never got the recognition it deserves!!! A+
p.s. Alfred Newman's score is also highly recommended.
