One of a cycle of late-1920s firefighting melodramas, Columbia's False Alarm stars John Harron as rookie fireman Joe Casey. During his first fire, Joe succumbs to fear, and as a result is ostracized by both his comrades and his fire-chief father (George Lewis). He goes to work at a steel mill, where constant exposure to smoke and flame helps him overcome his terror of fire. Joe proves himself a hero in the final reel, winning the heroine (Dorothy Revier) in the process. So that False Alarm will run the full six reels, screenwriter Leah Baird included a subplot involving the regeneration of Joe's dishonest brother (George O'Hara).
