Synopsis
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.

    Comments about Key to the City:

    I view the film for entertainment. Interesting to see Clark Gable and Loretta Young agreeing to make this film given the rumors of their relationship while making "The Call of the Wild" back in 1935.

      Comments about Key to the City:

      Great selection to finally "make it" to DVD -
      But, HATE the DVD-R format . . . would much rather have Archive titles released in the "Standard" full-production format. I have experienced too many repetitive problems with the ink-encoded DVD-R discs. And my (two)
      Blu-Ray/DVD Players have NOT been "the problem" !
      The DVD-R (ink-created) "Rings Of Saturn" defect cannot be "read".
