The Screening Room….Grand Hotel


If you were a fan of Wes Anderson’s recent Grand Budapest Hotel, then I think you might enjoy 1932′s Grand Hotel.


“Grand Hotel” is that quintessential old Hollywood glamour film that’s just as easy to watch today, as I assume it was in 1932 (the film recieved the Academy Award for Best Picture that year).


The plot is fantastic. It revolves around several guests of Berlins finest hotel, “The Grand Hotel” as they come, go, and intersect with each other.  It’s like all your favorite stars playing house together!


And by all your favorite stars, I’m talking John Barrymore, Lionel Barrymore, Wallace Beery, Joan Crawford, and The Greta Garbo.
