Reviews
Mine: A major league melodrama. A classic, if not a very interesting movie.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Vicki Baum's novel and play of plush Berlin hotel where ``nothing ever happens. '' Stars prove the contrary: Garbo as lonely ballerina, John B. her jewel-thief lover, Lionel B. a dying man, Crawford an ambitious stenographer, Beery a hardened businessman, Stone the observer. Scripted by William A. Drake. Best Picture Oscar winner; a must. Plot reworked many times (in HOTEL BERLIN, WEEKEND AT THE WALDORF, etc. ). Later a Broadway musical.
