Beware Fury's Ape . . . And Batman's Butler

British period stories have always been popular and this story, based on a true tale of love and horror in England comes to the screen with Valerie Hobson, Stewart Granger, and Batman's butler. Of course we need a huge castle sized estate with stable hands, butlers, ladies in waiting and families rich with emotions of love, hate, deceit, dishonesty, infidelity, intrigue . . . . and murder! Valerie Hobson is Blanche Fuller, a young well-bred lady who is barely existing by serving wealthy old ladies. One day she gets a letter from her uncle who has just lost his wife. He invites Blanche to join his family and become governess to his young daughter. When Blanche arrives at Clare Hall she first meets Philip Thorn, played by Stewart Granger. It turns out that he has grown up in Clare Hall, and in fact his father was Adam Fury and Clare Hall had been in the Fury family for hundreds of years. Ownership of Clare Hall would have come to him when his father died, but his father had neglected to formally marry his mother, and so the estate was sold to Blanche's uncle, and Philip remained on as a servant. Philip Fury of Clare Hall tells Blanche about the curse of the Fury Ape, which is the symbol of Clare Hall. Several hundred years earlier the first Fury perished in battle, and an ape that he had as a pet stood over his body protecting it and not permitting anyone to come near. For hundreds of years the Fury family has believed that anyone bringing ill will to a descendant of Fury will suffer the wrath of the Fury Ape. Uncle Simon, who now owns Clare Hall, has a son Laurence and as cousin Blanche wants to live the true life of wealth so she soon marries cousin Laurence. After becoming Mrs. Fury, wife of cousin Laurence, she and Philip begin a torrid illicit love affair that brings them both to the realization that happiness will never be truly theirs as long as Uncle Simon and husband Laurence are alive . . . . What to do . . . . . What to do . . . . . Oh, are you still wondering where Batman's butler comes into the mix? Well, if you haven't noticed yet, cousin Laurence is played by Michael Gough, who is acting in one of his first motion pictures. He will perform in nearly two hundred movies and television shows, but be famously remembered as Alfred Pennyworth, Batman's butler in the 1989 Batman movie with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson, and again in the 1992 "Batman Returns" with Michael Keaton, Michelle Pfeiffer and Danny DeVito. Here he is the cousin who gets Blanche's hand in marriage, but not her heart. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
