Rate this:
In Chaplińђةs second effort for Mutual, he portrays an inept firefighter at Fire Station 23. Charlie, still asleep, mistakes a drill bell for a fire alarm and single-handedly drives out the horse-drawn fire engine. When he discovers his error, he simply backs up the engine into the fire station, with horses galloping backward (an early instance of camera trickśђوcameramen Foster and Totheroh skillfully cranked the cameras in reverse and Chaplin staged the action backward).
