Welcome to New York's posh Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Your suite is waiting - and so are romance, glamour, comedy and drama played with great flair by an all-star cast. A remake of Grand Hotel updated to the waning days of World War II, Week-end at the Waldorf follows the fortunes of a lonely movie star (Ginger Rogers), an on-the-make stenographer (Lana Turner), a wounded flyer (Van Johnson), a war correspondent (Walter Pidgeon), a wheeler-dealer (Edward Arnold) and a gossip columnist (Robert Benchley) whose lives crisscross over two days of martinis, mistaken identities and marriages real and faux. The film's big budget (every dime shows on the screen) paid off handsomely: Week-end became one of 1945's biggest hits.
This lavish, Americanized remake of "Grand Hotel" features Lana Turner and Ginger Rogers in the roles originated by Jean Crawford and Greta Garbo. Turner portrays the ambitious hotel stenographer who must choose between love and money.
A remake of the 1932 classic, "Grand Hotel." The film, set in New York City rather than Berlin, follows the loves, tragedies and intrigues of the elegant guests at the famed Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
