Good Ferry Fire Footage
Ejaz | 10/12/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The best footage on here are the shots of the Staten Island Ferry burning. The angles are really good and the flame is caught well. That said, most of the shots are very good - for vintage footage. It's too bad there are no color shots, but its more than made up for with the great captures of the old school firefighting techniques and equipment. I reccomend this title highly."
More Quality Stillman Footage
Deacon | America | 05/23/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are into fire footage, the Stillman films are some of the best vintage ones made. While they are black and white and have no sound, they manage to capture the starkness that is flames on film. The heroism of the firemen themselves is also well preserved, particularly when you think that they did not have any modern equipment at all. I liked the New York setting, as it gave it a certain sense of gravitas, but the real stars here are the flames and they are shot very, very well."
On Fire
Bart | Montpellier, France | 04/27/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a far cry from fire fighting stuff today. The guys in these clips are forced to fight fires with almost no safety equipment or aperatus at all.

The footage is very dramatic because they are seriously putting their lives at risk. The shots of the flames are well done as well.

There is no narration, so you sort of have to figure out what's goign on on your own, but I liked seeing just why these guys are called "New York's Bravest" - they were fighing on a wing and a prayer.

Good, real fire fighting shots."
