Famed Broadway actress Carlotta Lee has been in a string of flops which is not only hurting her professionally but in the pocketbook. Peter Lawrence is a powerful New York "man about town" gossip columnist and occasional radio host. Carlotta and Peter grew up together in "the 'hood" when they were just Charlie and Pete, they who were once engaged before they both earned their fame. Regardless of their history, Pete is not averse to giving Charlie unsolicited advice via the column all in an effort for her to do what he thinks is right for her. When he learns that an old childhood friend, Buckteeth O'Toole, has just died in a workplace accident leaving his two children, thirteen year old Mike and adolescent Jake, orphaned, Pete uses his platforms to try and find someone to adopt the pair instead of sending them to an orphanage where they would probably be eventually separated. Needing a little publicity, Jimmy Slattery, Charlie's press agent, unilaterally decides a good stunt would be for Charlie to adopt the children, of which she is not aware until surrounded by press and the children themselves. Pete can see the stunt for what it is, which is not in the best interest of the children. Getting over the fact of Mike and Jake being ragamuffins albeit kindhearted ones, Charlie and the children bond leading to Charlie having a change of heart in ending up truly wanting to be mother to the two. Charlie and Pete get into one misadventure after another in Charlie trying to keep the children and Pete trying to take them away, with Mike and Pete not wanting to hurt either in the process.

Mary Blake arrives at Blackie Norton's Paradise gambling hall and beer garden looking for work as a singer. Blackie embarrasses her by asking to see her legs, but does hire her. She faints from hunger. Nob Hill Socialite Jack Burley and Maestro Baldini of the Tivoli Opera House see her singing and offer her a chance to do opera, but Blackie has her under a two-year contract which she sorrowfully stands by. Later, when he makes up posters featuring Mary in tights, she does leave for the Tivoli. Blackie gets an injunction against Burley, but knocks out the process server when he hears Mary's performance as Marguerite in "Faust". She asks her to marry him and she agrees to go back to the Paradise as his kind of singer, but Blackie's childhood chum Father Tim intervenes. After Blackie slugs the priest, Mary leaves. She is soon the star of the Tivoli and Blackie's place is closed down. She sings a rousing "San Francisco" on behalf of the Paradise at the annual "Chicken Ball" and wins the $10,000 prize which Blackie throws to the floor. As she storms out of the hall a terrible rumble betokens the famous San Francisco earthquake. Buildings collapse, streets split wide open, the city burns, the army dynamites whole sections of town. After staggering around in a stupor Blackie finds Father Tim and the two of them find Mary at a Salvation Army camp. Backed by hundreds of others, they look out over the ruins which are gradually replaced by the shining new city with a reprise of the title song.

Nana is a 1934 American Pre-Code film, produced by Samuel Goldwyn, released through United Artists, starring Anna Sten. and directed by Dorothy Arzner and George Fitzmaurice. This version of Émile Zola's heroine was to be the vehicle for Sten's triumph as Samuel Goldwyn's trained, groomed and heavily promoted answer to Greta Garbo. Despite the big investment, the publicity help from William Randolph Hearst, and a record-breaking opening week at Radio City Music Hall, Sten was beautiful but disappointing. Goldwyn's tutoring of Sten is mentioned in Cole Porter's 1934 song "Anything Goes" from the musical of the same name: "If Sam Goldwyn can with great conviction / Instruct Anna Sten in diction / Then Anna shows / Anything goes."
