Flesh and Fury stars Oscar nominated Tony Curtis in one of his first leading roles with Golden Globe winner Jan Sterling and Wallace Ford. Director Joseph Pevney tells the story of deaf mute boxer Paul Callan (Curtis) who starts boxing for $25 purses when he catches the eye of Sonya Bartow (Sterling) a bloodthirsty, money-sucking blonde bombshell. With Sonya keen to push his career (and his winnings!), and with the help of retired fight manager Jack'Pop' Richardson (Ford), Callan seems all but unstoppable. For a time, Sonya has the upper hand with Paul, until a rival appears in the shape of upper-crust reporter Ann Hollis (Mona Freeman). Assigned to write an article on the hearing-impaired fighter she soon finds herself falling for him. With the women fighting for influence over Paul and ultimately his love, or money in Sonya's case, Paul quickly discovers that getting what he has always wanted doesn't necessarily lead to a happy ending.
