Bigger and Better (film #1385 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: Industrial]

Silent color film footage from the 30s and 40s showing firefighters putting out various fires in the New York City area. Unfortunately, the film has been poorly digitized, with lots of pixelization, so it’s hard to see what’s happening, especially in the night scenes. Still, it’s kind of fun to see those big old firetrucks in glorious color.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.
