Romantic drama combines with humor, starpower combines with lavish spectacle and the walls come tumbling down! This Academy Award®-winning extravaganza's street-splitting, brick-cascading, fire-raging recreation of the cataclysmic earthquake remains "one of the greatest action sequences in the history of cinema, rivaling the chariot race in both Ben-Hurs" (Adrian Turner, Time Out Film Guide).

Clark Gable plays rakish Barbary Coast kingpin Blackie Norton. Jeanette MacDonald portrays a singer torn by her love for Blackie and her need to succeed among the operagoing elite. Earning the first of nine career Best Actor Oscar® nominations, Spencer Tracy is a priest who supplements spiritual advice with a mean right hook. He urges Blackie to change. But if love and religion can't reform Blackie, Mother Nature will.

    Comments about this product:

    I would tresure this movie too for all time, i love clark cable and judy garland, Gene kelly, mickey rooney, i think mickey rooney should have got more awards for the movies he made,he was a kind loving man and deserved more praise for all he's done in hollywood, wasn't fair that he didn't! but what can you do now? he's passed on now and he will be missed. but this movie is a good one, a must see!!!

        Comments about this product:

        This is the story of a Barbary Coast saloon owner (Clark Gable) and an extremely talented singer (Jeanette MacDonald) who fall in love just prior to the famous San Francisco earthquake of 1906. From the special effects, you'd never know this movie was released in 1936. It is extremely believable, entertaining, and informative. I would have liked to see a commentary on the movie, but the two travelogues on San Francisco are enjoyable, as is the Clark Gable profile from TNT. The alternate ending sequence was a bit of a disappointment, but that's my only criticism. This was not my first time to see it and it won't be my last. Highly recommended.

                    Gable shines as a shady owner of a bar and showplace Tracy preaches as a priest and Mac Donald sings by belting out San Francisco on stage then transposes to opera. The special effects are outstanding in the earthquake scenes. A black & white marvelof photography.

                                          Great actors and it really gave an inside, personal look at that tragic event so many years ago.

                                            The Colorized Version is the best. Jeanette McDonald is at her Vocal Peak in this Movie. Excellent Story and Actors. Would like to see the Colorized Version in Letter Box Format on DVD.
