Movie Info

The second of Charles Chaplin's Mutual two-reelers, The Fireman is virtually wall-to-wall slapstick. Chaplin is an earnest but inept member of a ramshackle small town fire department. His boss, Eric Campbell, has entered into an unhanded deal with the wealthy father of heroine Edna Purviance; the father plans to burn down his house for the insurance and split the settlement with Campbell, provided that the latter does not attempt to extinguish the blaze. Chaplin, of course, knows nothing about

Audience Reviews for The Fireman, (A Gallant Fireman )

Charlie Chaplin's acrobatic feats in sliding down the pole and driving the fire engine are marvelous in point of agility, and his knockabout clowning with the huge captain of the house is worthy of an India-rubber man. There is little plot to the comedy, as is the case with most of these fantasies, but the Chaplin antics are sufficient to keep interest alive in the piece from start to finish.
