THE FIRE BRIGADE-a forgotten silent film.
14 February 1999 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

THE FIRE BRIGADE, though produced by M-G-M in 1927, is however, a film that is never viewed today. It is a great silent, starring May McAvoy. It was used in condensed form in Kevin Brownlow-David Gill's HOLLYWOOD (1980), but is never seen on television, let alone on home video. It is a forgotten silent film.
