Furie was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. His parents, Polish-Jewish immigrants from the same European village, raised him with progressive values that were counter to the climate and spirit of the times. As a young man in Canada with big ideals, Furie finds himself constantly shortchanged by a nation with an inferiority complex. His progressive, supportive parents, however, agree to send him to the U.S. to continue his education. After attending Carnegie Tech in Pittsburgh and graduating with a theater degree, he returns home and scores a job at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), where he is enlisted to watch 200 B movies. This provides his “film school,” and soon he is asked to direct a public-service announcement for the prevention of forest fires. He marries his first wife, Sheila Hiltz.
