Fireman Save My Child is an exceptionally well-constructed slapstick comedy, utilizing the talents of stars Wallace Beery and Raymond Hatton to the utmost. Beery and Hatton go through their usual paces as Elmer and Sam, a pair of firefighters who spend most of their time waiting hand and foot on the chief's pretty, spoiled daughter Dora (Josephine Dunn). The girl eventually learns to act her age, while Elmer and Sam become accidental heroes during the climactic conflagration. Fireman Save My Child was written by Monte Brice and Tom Geraghty, both seasoned funsters who knew how to milk every situation for its full laugh value.
