Charlie Chaplin- a funny fireman

This silent short takes place in a fire station.Charlie is a fireman who does everything wrong.A man talks the fire chief into ignoring his burning home, because he wants the insurance money.What the man doesn't know is that his daughter (the love of the chief) happens to be upstairs in the house.Will Chaplin safe the day? The Fireman from 1916 is Charles Chaplin's second film he created for Mutual Film Corporation.The movie has its usual Chaplin cast.Alongside the comedian there is Edna Purviance as Girl.Lloyd Bacon is Her Father.Big man Eric Campbell is Foreman of the Brigade.Leo White plays Owner of Burning House.It's most funny to watch Chaplin waking up.And the way he uses the fireman's pole, is just hilarious.And reversing the horses is lots of fun to watch.This Chaplin short is an action-packed comedy that's gonna leave a smile on your face.
