Richard Roundtree gives an emotional performance as a dedicated black firefighter who is a fish out of water in an all-white firehouse. His hero does not beat around the bush when it comes to confronting his co-workers about the race issue. If you like Richard Roundtree, you will play this film.
I remember seeing this film when it came out in 1973. I trust it was a made for TV film, but it had better production values than the usual made for TV fare.Just watched it again for the first time in over 30 years last night. I got it on one of those cheap DVDs you search at the dollar store.Firehouse begins of interesting enough. With some John Carpenter horror film synthesizer melody and heartbeats pounding, we see fire starters setting an urban building ablaze. The town fire department arrives shortly thereafter. The firefighting scenes were grainy and realistic. They may have been true firefighters, but I am not sure.From here, we are introduced to the firefighters at a particular station. Led by Captain Parr (Andrew Duggan), we meet Spike (Vince Edwards), Hank (Richard Jaeckel), and Sonny (Val Avery). Other fireman, Eddie, dies in the blaze that starts the movie. Spike is a bigot who blames the fire on blacks and the others go along with him.Meanwhile, Shelly Forsythe (Richard Roundtree) is the first black to join the station. He is a "probbie". Shelly is reluctant to join the fire department and gets into an argument with his wife, who threatens to leave him if he doesn't join.Racial tensions develop as later as Shelly arrives. Spike makes it hard for him. The captain is spineless (in once seen he gives Spike an order and Spike replies "Don't say me what to do.") and says Shelly just to ignore the verbal abuse.Some of the racial problems are stereotyped and clichéd. I thought it was unrealistic that a huge town would not have hired any black firemen by 1973. And I doubt if Spike's behavior was realistic. His hostility toward Shelly could have gotten him fired, but everyone named him a character so they looked the another way.
The box cover on this page has a picture of Fred Williamson who is NOT in the movie. It's Richard Roundtree in the movie!! Where did this picture come from?? These two guys don't look alike!!Not too terrible of a 70's movie. I know the fire department scenes were fairly accurate portrayals of life in the station since I come from a family of firefighters. Tension between the guys, racial and otherwise, was and still is typical for any group of folks living and working in a tight zone such as a firehouse. I especially liked the stunts pulled on the rookie.Richard Jaeckel (Hank Myers) went on to star in the TV series that was spawned off of this movie.
