Fire Fighters was a so-so second Our Gang short
19 September 2014 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This Hal Roach comedy short, Fire Fighters, was the second in the "Our Gang/Little Rascals" series. It begins with a duck dressed to the nines who tries to woo a hen before being chased by a dog and the duck's wife! Then we segue to Ernie "Booker T. Bacon" Morrison who's trying to saddle a mule with varying results. He's also entertaining his "sister" Farina (Allen Hoskins in his debut) by having "her" swing courtesy of a horse swinging his tail attached to a rope that helps the swing move! The gang arrives with little Jackie Condon (as Roosie) becoming chief because he has the fireman's hat. Oh, and there's a still of the alcohol inside a shed that becomes the "water" when the gang uses it for their excursions of putting fires out. I'll stop there and just say that while I was pretty amused by what I just described, it wasn't hilariously so. In fact, part of me felt bored watching the thing since there wasn't much in visual gags except when the slow-motion pace of various animals in a state of drunkenness happens. Directed by Robert F. McGowan and Tom McNamara who also did the cartoons depicted in the intertitles.
