Grand Hotel - cinema review
directed by Edmund Goulding, starring Greta Garbo, John Barrymore, Joan Crawford, Wallace Beery
b/w, 113', 35mm, Italian dubbed version
In a luxurious hotel in Berlin, many stories intertwine: a Russian ballerina on the twilight of her career; a self-professed baron and playboy; an industrialist and his secretary, dreaming of becoming an actress. Between comedy and drama, this film is a perfect example of the MGM Studio stylein the 30s, sporting some of the brightest stars in Hollywood, Garbo and Crawford leading the pack. Based on Vicki Baum's bestseller, the script is written by William A. Drake and Béla Balázs, the great Hungarian Cinema theorist.
