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.


 Neighborhood children foil a bootlegger.

 Additional Thanks

 Thank you to Directors Robert F. McGowan and Tom McNamara for directing effort. Thank you to Producer Hal Roach for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Peggy (Peggy Cartwright), Roosevelt Pershing Smith (Jackie Condon), Booker T. 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.
