Opposites attract in this slapstick comedy romance starring Clark Gable and Loretta Young in their first and final pairing since The Call of the Wild (1935). When stevedore-turned-mayor Steve Fisk (Gable) arrives at San Francisco’s national mayors convention, he naturally mistakes Clarissa Standish (Young) for his date, a shapely bubble dancer. Informed she’s actually the no-nonsense mayor of Wenonah, Maine, he invites her to dine at a rowdy nightclub, which lands them both in the clink. So when their arrests make the morning papers and Clarissa finds herself falling for Steve, she’s forced to choose between love and duty when the scandal threatens both of their careers. Costarring TV favorites Raymond Burr (Perry Mason) and Pamela Britton (My Favorite Martian), Key to the City also marked the final screen appearance of Frank Morgan, whose nearly 100-picture career included six with Gable as well as The Wizard of Oz, his best-known film.
