    If you enjoy vintage movies, stop here and enjoy. Bit too much singing, but great movie!

    This 1936 film set against the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, was probably the first big disaster blockbuster film. Great performances form Gable, Tracy and MacDonald!!!

    Clark Gable is the nightclub owner, Jeanette McDonald is his singer, and Spencer Tracy is a priest who is Gable's lifelong friend. Great singing from Jeanette, who was a real life opera singer. Towards the end of the movie they are hit by the great earthquake of 1906.

    Efectos especiales impresionantes de un terremoto para 1936 y un final muy patriòtico.

    MGM's smash hit of 1936 features glamorous stars (Gable, MacDonald, Tracy), music (the rousing title song, "Would You?" and an opera sequence for Jeanette), and that spectacular earthquake finale.

    An amazing work--great acting, set pieces, and the editing simply of the earthquake climax is remarkable. Anyone who doesn't cry at the film's conclusion simply can't be human! Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy and Jeanette MacDonald are excellent in their roles. Heartily recommended.

    San Francisco has the firepower (or should that be the earthquake power) of a very strong lineup. It was the 30s version of the blockbuster and similar to modern blockbusters, the script is a little thin and sensationalist.
