Our Favorite "San Francisco
1906 Earthquake" Movie

"San Francisco" (1936)
by Director W.S. Van Dyke

"San Francisco" is one of our
all-time favorite movies. It stars Clarke Gable, Jeannette MacDonald and Spencer Tracy.

The MGM musical features the famous SF song "San Francisco," which became one of two official city songs on May 15, 1984.

The movie is shown every April 18th at the Balboa Theater in San Francisco in commemoration of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake
and Fire
