Format: DVD
At last - the full movie! The scenes included in the road show version help flesh out the narrative, and the movie is now much more consistent and coherent than in the shorter version (until now, the only version available). If you liked this movie before, you'll like it even better now. It was an ambitious project by a fledgling studio (made when 20th Century Fox was only two years old) and they pulled it off in style. In addition, this disc includes a worthwhile biography of Don Ameche - a mainstay of the era's movies who won the Oscar decades later for "Cocoon".

Format: DVD
IN OLD CHICAGO (1940) - Alice Faye, Tyrone Power, Don Ameche, Alice Brady, Andy Devine, Brian Donlevy, Sidney Blackmer, Gene Raymond

This DVD presents two well-preserved versions. An original "road show" edition of the film that was whittled down before general circulation from 111 to 95 minutes. The final cut is here as well. Also included is a BIOGRAPHY episode, Don Ameche: Hollywood's Class Act, plus commentary tracks and a trailer.

Like all features and cartoons released during the lengthy ASCAP strike, "In Old Chicago" relies for music on such public domain chestnuts as "Oh Genevieve," "The Irish Washerwoman" and "Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys."

Set in 1871, a fictional drama of the O'Leary family unfolds while we wait for the family's skittish cow to kick over that lantern. This small barn fire culminates in the destruction of a major portion of the city from an all-engulfing inferno. Really spectacular fire sequences still boggle the mind fully 70 years later. IMO, Tyrone Power's best and a most enjoyable FOX motion picture.

Note: it's surprising that "In Old Chicago" has yet to be remade!

I thought this was a pretty accurate account of the Chicago Fire in 1871, not 1873, as someone else has said, but this person being from California, I can understand.
I am a Chicagoan, and try to find out as much as a possibly can about the fire. This is a historical fiction, but it does justice. The whole cow issue, is just a legend.

Format: VHS Tape
Tyrone Power and Don Ameche co-star in this stagey, grandiose historical drama, in which the rivalry of two brothers culminates in the Great Chicago Fire of 1873. The plot leading up to the fire is kind of standard fare, but the special effects at the end are really dazzling and horrific. Power gets a bigger, juicier role than Ameche, but they're both pretty good here. A reasonably fun rental.
