This hotel may have been grand, but the movie was 2 star!
on September 7, 2015
I watched this via Amazon Instant video, and I have to say, I was disappointed. First of all, I still can't see what all the fuss is over Greta Garbo - to me she is very hammy and over the top...an exotic accent can only get you so far. The Barrymore brothers were pretty good, though I have to admit John Barrymore seemed intoxicated in a couple of scenes...and there was no drinking involved in these scenes. The film was a little on the dull side, although the plot attempted to create excitement by highlighting all the drama unfolding in each character's life. Needless to say, I feel as if I wasted my money renting this movie.
