The film is delicious in that brassy, over-blown 20th Century Fox way.
Among the absurdities is Alice Faye singing "In Old Chicago" in a town
that was 35 years old. Yet it's amazing that so much of the actual
fire's history is accurately portrayed, such as Mrs. O'Leary's
"peg-leg" neighbor who sounded the alarm for the immediate DeKoven St.
neighbors. Some of the bigger shots are copied right from lithographs
of the period. But then most of the politics is totally fraudulent.
Women extras were not allowed to appear in dangerous situations in '30s
Hollywood so watch closely during the street scenes where there are
runaway horses and racing fire engines. The "ladies" scrambling around
are clearly tall men in Victorian drag. It's a hoot.
Those viewers of a certain age may remember a Sunday evening TV program
in the '50s with Walter Kronkite called "You Are There" which put you
into historical events. The episode featuring the Chicago Fire
cannibalized this Fox film and lifted much of the disaster footage.
There are so many parallels to the previous year's big MGM success "San
Francisco" (1936) with Clark Gable and Jeanette McDonald. Here we have
Alice Faye also singing in a saloon, a disaster during the night,
"dirty politics" with an attempt to clean out the slum zone, little
kids in danger during the fire, buildings being dynamited to contain
the blaze, the hero searching for days for his lost love among the
victims, and so forth.
