Storyline

After his political days are over, Red decides to become a fireman. He takes the exam, goes to fire college and is stationed at Company 27. That station is commanded by Captain Shannon, who punched him out over his last girl and does not like him seeing his sister Margie. Red does just enough work to get by, but then his lack of attention causes his best friend Skillet to be injured. For his punishment, Red is suspended and then transferred to a fire boat. He works harder and finds that the fireman's lot is not as easy or as safe as he thought. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Bland, run-of-the-mill B picture that even Ann Sheridan can't save
16 March 2015 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Dick Foran--more famous (or infamous) for playing singing cowboys--plays a wise-ass who joins the fire department to show a fireman he doesn't like how easy the job is. Robert Armstrong plays the fireman in question, and he does what he can with it. Ann Sheridan is Armstrong's sister, who Foran is interested in, and Armstrong doesn't want him near her. Sheridan shows the warm, easygoing but sexy personality she used to great effect later in her career, even though she only has a fairly small part here. This is strictly a bottom-of-the-bill quickie, directed by John Farrow who went on to bigger and better things, as did Sheridan. Foran didn't, pretty much staying in the "B" rut for the rest of his career. He's supposed to be a ladies man here, but he just doesn't pull it off, coming across as a conceited, arrogant jackass. Sheridan sparkles in a small part, and Armstrong is always interesting to watch. Unfortunately, the picture isn't. If you're an Ann Sheridan fan you'll want to see this. If you're not, you won't.
