Programme Notes

The Fireman was Charlie’s second comedy for Lone Star Mutual, completed on 12th June, 1916. Fireman Charlie and his brutish Chief are both in love with Edna. Edna’s father promises the Chief the girl, so long as he agrees not to bring in the brigade when the old man burns down his house for the sake of insurance. Unknowingly, he sets fire to the house while his daughter is upstairs. In a thrilling finale, Charlie climbs the ladder to rescue the girl, and wins her hand and heart. Charlie’s Fireman is burlesque, with the cooperation of the Los Angeles Fire Department, purchasing and burning down two old houses in the process.
