In Case of Fire! (1959)
ThinkStream films is very proud to present the ULTIMATE in “fire-scare” films from the ‘50s, “In Case of Fire!” We are so excited, in fact, it is almost impossible for us to “stay calm!”
Here are just a handful of amazing moments in this very hard-to-find original print!
- See an entire classroom of children trapped on the top story of a burning school building, and their daring rescue out a window!
- See some stupid chick excite panic in a crowded movie theatre when fire erupts!
- See a little girl trapped helplessly in her bedroom while her family’s house burns down around her and her rescue out the window by ladder. Her German shepherd is also rescued, incidentally, though it is unclear how exactly, it manages to climb down the same ladder….!
- Hear the word “calm” and all of its derivatives used countless times in twenty minutes!
This film is a classic and extremely rare!
Note: The following clip was taken directly from the original 16mm print and has been edited to a tiny fraction of the film's original length. Just remember one thing: “Stay calm!”
