Two Line Reviews - #205

Short Movie: The Fireman (1916)

Plot: Chaplin works in the fire department. After a poor reaction to an alarm, he earns the wrath of his co-workers and that makes him extra careful later on. How this troubles others and spoils the fire-fake-for-insurance plans of a wealthy man forms the rest of the plot.

  • There is so much of slapstick and all that is in the usual Chaplin style - enjoyable.
  • The reverse sequences that keep coming time and again are funny. So is the way by which Chaplin irritates the stout fireman.
Just a routine Chaplin comic flick; Not special.
