MGM classic focusing on the intertwining lives of the inhabitants of a Berlin hotel. A lonely ballerina (Greta Garbo) contemplates suicide; a ruthless industrialist (Wallace Beery) makes a last ditch attempt to save his company; a fallen aristocrat (John Barrymore) resorts to thievery; an ambitious young woman (Joan Crawford) is about to trade her virtue for success; and a terminally-ill clerk (Lionel Barrymore) has a final fling. All five residents are unaware that their lives are about to change dramatically. The film won an Oscar for Best Picture.

The story cannot fail to touch you and the extra DVD menu brings you back to the premier night with Crawford's arrival at
the Chinese Theatre. It might not be Garbo's 'deepest' role but she cannot fail to move you even without speaking or to make you smile with a sometimes over dramatized performance that fits perfectly with the times and the character played.
this was the first film i saw with that swedish beauty greta garbo and how stunning she is too! her scenes with john barrymore have a genuine sense of sexual passion to them. during the scene where she kisses him for the first time, garbo held on to barrymore after the director called cut. she was known for being a bit of a recluse and also for displaying moments of intense shyness according to co-star lionel barrymore. however, when she heard that she would be starring opposite john barrymore, greta garbo was looking forward to it and even waited for barrymore to arrive on the set apparently on the first day of shooting.
wallace beery plays the least sympathetic character in the picture, what with his harsh, uncompromising behaviour, both as a businessman and as a person. he also quite a sleaze with his secretary, played by a young joan crawford.
lionel barrymore plays the most sympathetic character as a man who hasn't much time left and so, he wishes to enjoy himself whilst he has the chance.
his younger brother john plays a raffles-type character who needs to urgently settle a debt by planning to steal some of garbo's priceless pearls.
a true classic.
Garbo plays the ballet dancer Grusinskaya and even if she is a little bit too tall and clumsy to be a credible ballet dancer, you forgive her because she is Garbo. No actor has ever become close to her fame, or re-placed her, cause she was unique on the screen. The famous line "I want to be alone" came out of Garbo in this movie.
But this movie includes other good actors too like John & Lionel Barrymore, Joan Crawford, Wallace Beery to mention a few of them and all of them are great in their roles.
I like the line "Grand Hotel. People come and go. Nothing ever happens". But it do happens a lot in this movie, watch and see...
