FIREFIGHTERS (Theatrical Release USA 1922)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Fire Fighters—cute, but a bit boring short silent film—has everything necessary to make a good film, but falls flat in presentation. The young people are good actors but there is no flare to the movie.

Bacon (Ernest Morrison), Elmo Billings, Richard Billings, Betsy Ann Hisle, Kenneth Johnson, George Ward, Allen Farina Hoskins, and Dinah.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. This film works as an academic study, but fails to provide real entertainment value. It would fail even the younger child.
