New York's heroic firefighters battle blazes in the Big Apple!

These films show exactly how brave these men were as they battled to keep their friends and neighbors safe - often while risking their own lives in the process.

You will thrill as flames reach high into the air and threaten to take down entire city blocks unless they can be contained!

We have now put together for the first time on one 2-DVD set a collection of the best vintage New York City fire films ever assembled. If you are a fire fighter, are fascinated by fires or just want to see great vintage films, you need to own New York's Bravest - A Firefighting Odyssey Part I today!

The Legendary Stillman Collection

All of these films come from the Stillman Fire Collection - considered the best resource ever of how fires were brought under control in the 20th Century!

To provide contrast we are even including some clips that show how similar fires were fought in Boston and London!

This DVD Has The Best Clips Ever Assembled If You Are
Interested In How Fires Were Fought In The Big Apple!

This 2-DVD set is a classic example of real American history that would otherwise be lost if not for the power of DVD technology. These clips have been fully restored, saved in digital format and persevered for the benefit of history.

Here are the highlights of the best tracks you will see when you order New York's Bravest - A Firefighting Odyssey Part I today:

Stillman Fires Collection: Dashes Of NYFD
Our first film kicks off with a brief glimpse at how fire stations recorded alarms in the 1920s. Then we move onto images of legendary Chief Kenlon who had installed an amazing camera mounted on the hood of his truck while he raced get to a fire! Some footage here will remind you, of all things, the French Connection.

Stillman Fires Collection: Dashes Of NYFD

Stillman Fires Collection: New York Fire Dept
This film is a bunch of RKO-Pathe clips edited together and shows some spectacular fires. The rubber factory fire is the fieriest of the lot, billowing smoke everywhere. We also see clips from an oil refinery and a lumberyard in London (which brings the title of the film into question). It finally ends with a ship fire.

Stillman Fires Collection: Albany St Lumber Yard
This clip includes silent film footage from the 1930s of firefighters fighting fires in various Boston locations, including the Albany St. Lumber Yard. Some of the scenes of fires are pretty spectacular while other scenes are murky and hard to see. This is gritty, real firefighting footage, though, so if that interests you, this is a film to check out.

Stillman Fires Collection: FDNY Chief Kenlon's Ride
The first 4 minutes of this film are amazing, as we see a fire chief's dash to a fire. The camera is attached to the hood of the car, as he carouses through traffic: when that's too heavy, he goes on the SIDEWALK. Wheee!!

Stillman Fires Collection: Bigger And Better
Silent color film footage from the 1930s and 40s showing firefighters putting out various fires in the New York City area. This clip was not as well preserved as the others and there is some pixilation - but there is also great fire footage!

Stillman Fires Collection: FDNY Chief Officers
This short is dominated by unnamed fire department chiefs walking up and down trying not to notice the camera. If you look beyond that, you can catch some fascinating footage of New York in the 20's, the stoops, the cars, and the fashions! You will love the flapper costume a little girl is wearing! Also, look for the movie poster for the long forgotten movie "Journey To Chinatown" made by Fox in 1926! There is another bit at the end of how a call gets to the station.

Stillman Fires Collection: FDNY Nozzle High Spray
This film is a short demonstration of the Conran Monorail Nozzle system which is a impossibly constructed "how are they going to use that?" type of gadget which would help firefighters fight fires.
