San Francisco (1936) - By Your Applause Mary (Jeanette MacDonald) wins the talent contest, intending to raise funds for the political campaign of her unlucky old pal and employer Blackie (Clark Gable) who rejects the money she's won, and darn sure seems to cause the 1906 earthquake, in MGM's San Francisco, 1936.
San Francisco (1936) - December 31, 1905 The prologue at the tail end of the credits, extensive carousing and the introduction of Blackie (Clark Gable) spectating at a fire, just a hint of things to come in MGM's San Francisco, 1936.
