Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A huge blockbuster, this MGM melodrama is mostly known for its ten-minute recreation of the 1906 Earthquake, but it also has an emotionally engaging story and is extremely well-acted by Gable, Tracy, and Jeanette MacDonald, who sings the famous song."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Gable, Tracy, McDonald singing - and an earthquake. Who could ask for anything more? A typical MGM extravaganza."
‑ Bob Bloom, Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
"..a big, brawling, boisterous, sentimental, touching, inspiring, thoroughly entertaining motion picture."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Engagingly silly epic with soap opera story."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
