This isn’t to be confused with A Morning Alarm, a short from earlier in 1896. In that one, a horse drawn fire-truck heads down the street. In this one, a horse drawn fire-truck heads down the SNOWY street. I actually thought this one looked really cool; the snowy setting is cool and the quality is surprisingly good – you can actually see the snow falling and the horses’ puffing breath. Feels like a technological upgrade. 1 star.
tl;dr – a striking setting and better visual quality elevate this one above its ilk, but not all that far I guess. 1 star.
