Movie review – A true classic, I give you….Grand Hotel (1932)

First let me wow you with the cast: Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo, John Barrymore.  Let me allow you to soak in this greatness.

Joan…*sigh*

Greta….*sigh*

and John…*swoons*

Basically this movie is about  a group of very different individuals staying at a luxurious hotel in Berlin deal with each of their respective dramas. John, who is the resident hotel thief and gambler, has a brief flirtation with Joan who is at the hotel on business as a stenographer, only to quickly fall head over heals in love with Greta, a world famous ballerina.  Joan gives a great performance, her eyes and smile dazzle you, Greta, with her silent film background, is very passionate and communicates so much about her character just in facial expressions and body language.  You really get a feel her anguish.  I loved Johns character because he was devilishly handsome and flirtatious.  He was also a gentleman and played this diverse part well.

This is a great look into luxury travel in the past, and the different characters you would come in contact with during your travel adventures.  As I like to say, a must see!!
