Rating: 8/10 -- A tremendously sturdy, thoroughly unimaginative, and massively entrancing sample of the early-'30s Hollywood machine doing everything exactly right. Full Review

The Nashville of its day, Grand Hotel's reputation has outgrown its actual quality Full Review

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. Full Review

Rating: 5/5 -- The star-filled melodrama that is Grand Hotel became a blueprint for almost every glossy Hollywood soap opera that followed it. Full Review

Description by

"People come. People go. Nothing ever happens," one world-weary patron (Lewis Stone) of Berlin's finest hotel comments. Movie audiences knew better. They were witnessing the glorious comings, goings and intersecting stories of a starry array billed as "the greatest cast on stage or screen history!"

Ruined aristocrat John Barrymore. Terminally ill clerk Lionel Barrymore. Ruthless tycoon Wallace Beery. Scheming stenographer Joan Crawford. And disillusioned ballerina Greta Garbo. Teaming them was a masterstroke whose success fostered more star-packed extravaganzas. The radiant film captured the 1931-32 Best Picture Academy Award. What a Grand showcase of the allure and style of classic moviemaking!
