Production number: 47113
Shooting commenced: March 27, 1978
Airdate: Sunday 8 pm, December 31, 1978
Writer and Director: R.A. Cinader
LACoFD Technical Advisor: None Required
Guest Cast: None noted. In the opening scene the
Chief Officer during the graduating ceremony is the only ‘guest’ and is not
credited. Two other named firefighters promoting to Captain, Craig Brice and
Robert Bellingham, have no speaking lines. They appeared in some Emergency!
Story: Johnny & Roy are both promoted to Captain and
reminisce about their past experiences as paramedics. Among the Flashback
sequences are the rescue of airplane passengers after a crash-landing, a
potential suicide threatening to leap from a crane tower, and a girl whose toe
is stuck in a faucet.
Goofs: (1) The re-aired boat fire on the
lake, when they jump out of the helicopter to save the man in the water when a
water drop is done on the boat. I want to know how they got their radio to work
after they jumped in the water and got back on the boat and why their shirts
were so dry. (2) And let’s not forget Brice’s amazing race changing abilities.
Tidbit: James G. Richardson did not play Craig ‘by the book’ Brice in
this movie. In a bit of strange casting, a tall African-American played Brice.
Richardson was off filming a movie and unavailable at the time.
