In the film Cairo (1942), Homer Smith (Robert young) asks movie star Marcia Warren (Jeanette MacDonald) "Have you ever been in san Francisco?" She responds, "Yes. Once with Gable and Tracy. And the joint fell apart." This is a reference to the film San Francisco (1936), which starred Jeanette MacDonald, Clark Gable, and Spencer Tracy and featured the San Francisco earthquake.
