the movie "San Francisco" : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Am interested to learn more about the premiere of the film "San Francisco" in the year 1936. Am told that Clark Gable attended the premiere in The City. If this is so, then who else represented MGM w/ a public appearence and what date did this occur? Of note: (This may be far-fetched; but I'm hoping San Francsico native Edgar Kennedy-who played the part of the Sheriff in the film (and also lived through the earthquake when it occured) attended the preview and was interviewed. That would be a great local tie-in, for I don't think anyone else in the film actually experienced the earthquake 30 years prior. Bill Cassara

I don't know the answer to your question, but I'd be interested in finding out as well!

On my Northern California Movies website, I have a page online for the movie San Francisco, although no pictures are up yet since the movie hasn't been released on DVD.
