Cute Our Gang short.
4 August 2007 | by hgreig12See all my reviews

Though not the best of the bunch, The Fourth Alarm is definitely a cute later silent era Our Gang comedy.

THE FOURTH ALARM starts off with the kids having their Coney Island, built by the fire chief, but when he and the fire department get called off to a fire, the gang must put out a fire that has just started in a nearby home. After successfully putting out the fire by themselves, they get made honorary firemen. After building their own firehouse, a real fire starts in town. Once there, the real fire department tells them to stay where its safe, but that doesn't stop the gang from saving the day!
