Grand Hotel


Dir. Edmund Goulding. 1932, 115 mins. 35mm. With Greta Garbo, John Barrymore, Joan Crawford, Wallace Beery, Lionel Barrymore. The lavish art deco hotel is a stand-in for the glamour of MGM itself in this quintessential star vehicle featuring Greta Garbo as a ballerina who wants to be alone, John Barrymore as a fading aristocrat, and Joan Crawford as an ambitious young stenographer on the make.
