Academy Award winners Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy star as best friends and rivals, rogue and priest, fighting for the soul of a beautiful woman--and for the soul of one of the world's greatest cities, San Francisco. 1906. In the beautiful, brawling city spawned by the California Gold Rush, party boss and dance hall owner Blackie Norton (Gable) refuses to release singer Mary Blake (Jeanette MacDonald) from her contract with him. Blackie's best friend, Father Tim Mullin (Tracy), urges him to let Mary sing for the city's opera, but Blackie can't admit to anyone that he won't let Mary go because he's in love with her. But when the 1906 earthquake destroys the city, Blackie and Mary discover what is truly important, and together they vow to rebuild their lives and their beloved city.
