Description

Grand Hotel

At a luxurious Berlin hotel between the wars, the once-wealthy Baron Felix von Gaigern (John Barrymore) supports himself as a thief and gambler. In this lavish adaptation of the successful Broadway play, the baron romances one of his marks, the aging ballerina Grusinskaya (Greta Garbo), and teams with dying accountant Otto Kringelein (Lionel Barrymore) against his former boss, crooked industrialist Preysing (Wallace Beery), and his ambitious stenographer, Flaemmchen (Joan Crawford).

  • Best Picture Oscar Winner 1931–1932.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Grand Hotel is superbly acted and finely produced. " – Age Staff
  • " In Grand Hotel one finds the perfection of realistic acting. This was to be expected, for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has assembled in this production the most notable cast which has ever appeared In any one film. " – SMH Staff
  • " Most of the players give impossibly bad performances-they chew up the camera. But if you want to see what screen glamour used to be, and what, originally, “stars” were, this is perhaps the best example of all time. " – Pauline Kael
