Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy would go on to make two other films together, _Test Pilot_ and Boom Town (1940). By the end of the filming of the latter, Tracy had tired of always receiving supporting billing below Gable and insisted on shared billing going forward. Gable did not agree with this and the two never worked together again.

The success of the film convinced Darryl F. Zanuck to set up his own disaster movie at 20th Century Fox the following year. In Old Chicago (1937) proved to be just as big a hit with audiences.
