At a Mayor's convention in San Francisco, California, ex-longshoreman Steve Fisk meets Clarissa Standish from New England. Fisk is Mayor of Puget City, and is proud of his rough and tumble background. Standish is Mayor of Winona, Maine, and is equally proud of her education and dedication to the people who elected her. Thrown together, the two opposites attract, and their escapades during the convention get each of them in hot water back home.Written by

Dore Schary , the head of MGM, personally asked Loretta Young to be Clark Gable's co-star, even though he knew about the affair and love child (Judy Lewis) between the two fifteen years earlier. She accepted because refusing would lead to more rumors than during their affair. See more »
Towards the end of the movie when Steve (Gable) and Les (Burr) are fighting, the handkerchief in Steve's jacket pocket is even across the top. The camera switches to Les, then back to Steve and the left side of the handkerchief is higher than the right. Not long after, both sides are even again. Then towards the end of the fight, the handkerchief is missing completely although we didn't see it fall. See more »
You've seen the last of me, Mayor Fisk. I'd rather be an old maid all the rest of my life than the wife... than the wife of a man who would... Why you'd beat your wife, I know you would. You're just the type.

Back in the Golden Age of Hollywood Romance was alive in well. But when television came. Romance lost its steam. Now Key to the City is a funny and very rewarding film to watch. Clark Gable has a good leading lady. Loretta Young a very beautiful leading lady. Loretta Young's career in Hollywood has been legendary. So her acting in this film would be very good. Her other co-stars. Lewis Stone and Frank Morgan really make this picture a classic. This would be Frank Morgan's last film.
But in this film there were goofs. At the end of the film became very silly at times. But see the film and enjoy the romance and the comedy associated with it.
