Regarding Clark Gable and ?San Francisco,? I happened to study a lot of details about the 1906 SF fire and earthquake when I lived there, and a local theater began showing the movie every year on the anniversary of the earthquake. I learned that the film, although based on a fictional story about the individual people, was quite accurate in many details: Much of the music at the talent show was authentic to the era, the men and women?s clothes were accurate to 1906, the women?s hair styles were accurate, the Opera being in town (Caruso was shaken out of his hotel bed that morning), Lotta?s Fountain, The Coast filled with vice, the various corrupt city commission rules, laws, and politics, the way City Hall collapsed (the model collapsed the way the real City Hall collapsed), the models of the burning city (they were models of many of the real building of 1906 San Francisco), the general stories about how the people on Nob Hill originally made their money, the second wave of the quake, the type of motion of the quake, the broken water mains, the gas lines breaking, the tent city set up in Golden Gate Park, the local animosity toward Los Angeles citizens, the troops down from the Presidio, the troops blowing up buildings to stop the fire, the shooting of looters, the long carriage ride out to Golden Gate Park from town, and many other details. The tune ?San Francisco? seems to be new and was jazzed up for a 1930s audience.

Fred, thanks for the info, regarding the San Francisco earthquake, it was very interesting.

By the way the title song was written for the movie with lyrics by the fabulous Gus Kahn.

The quake special effects were quite impressive for 1936.

Yes, the quake effects were remarkable. I first saw the film on the Late Show in the mid-50s when I was about 13, and I was astonished at the big scene when the street cracks apart and 3 or 4 feet down in the hole were water mains that broke. They had to build a big set that acually had two parts that were moved apart, and they must have had 8 or more feet of dirt showing under the street level.

 

The real City Hall cracked apart and the stone veneer sides fell off just like in the movie, leaving the dome supported by steel beams. It looks to me like the movie model of City Hall is very large and maybe made out of plaster that was designed to crack apart at the right places.
