Things really get shaken up when an aspiring opera singer becomes involved with a bawdy saloon owner and his high-society rival during the devastating earthquake of 1906. Spectacular special effects are second only to the stellar performances of Oscar-winner Clark Gable ("Gone With the Wind", "It Happened One Night"), Oscar-winner Spencer Tracy ("Mutiny on the Bounty," "Adam's Rib") and Jeanette MacDonald ("Love Me Tonight"). Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Writing and Director. Spencer Tracy received his first of nine nominations. Look for The Three Stooges in one of their few feature appearances. With buildings crumbling, streets opening up, and fires erupting, this is the disaster picture that set the standard.
