Fireman, Save My Child (1932)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

First film in Warner's trilogy of baseball films with Joe E. Brown. In this one Brown plays a star pitcher who also just happens to be a fireman. Even with the World Series on the line he can't help but put being a fireman at number one. I've seen the last film in this trilogy and really enjoyed it so that's why I was so disappointed in this one. Brown is his usual self, which brings a few laughs but overall he isn't nearly as wild and out of control as normal. The supporting cast are deadly dull and really don't add any laughs so it's pretty much Brown trying to do everything on his own. You get the mean blonde subplot, which is pretty dull as well. Directed by Lloyd Bacon.
