Son of Fury
-- Moody 18th-century adventure tale of an English orphan (Roddy McDowall) raised as a servant by his villainous uncle (George Sanders), but when grown (Tyrone Power) runs away to the South Seas, falls in love with a native woman (Gene Tierney), harvests a fortune in pearls and returns to claim his rightful inheritance. Director John Cromwell delivers a well-crafted period piece with a great supporting cast (Elsa Lanchester, John Carradine and Dudley Digges), but the wronged hero's brooding over past injustices grows tiresome. Stylized violence and romantic complications. (A-II) (br)
