Movie Info

During the off-season at the Beauregard Hotel, the secrets of some guests are exposed. Lovely but vulnerable Ann Shankland (Rita Hayworth) travels to the hotel in hopes of starting over with her ex-husband, John (Burt Lancaster), but she does not know that he is already engaged to Pat Cooper (Wendy Hiller), the manager of the hotel. Meanwhile, Mrs. Railton-Bell (Gladys Cooper) and her daughter Sibyl (Deborah Kerr) discover the hidden truth about war veteran Major Pollack (David Niven).

    Niven once mentioned in his autobiography that he was never a great actor but he really comes to the fore in this tale of strangers coming together at a hotel initially separated but eventually interacting in a marvelous way.

    Little more than a glorified soap opera, one that belittles gossips and gossiping while diving headlong into the same, thereby allowing one both the pleasure of looking down at others as well as the pleasure of looking down at people who are low enough to take pleasure in such common and tawdry filth. Or, in a word, British. All the this is raised slightly by a super cast, simply enjoyable to watch.

    It is interesting to see some of the better movies of the 50's. I only watched this as the TV guide rated it 4 *'s. Can you imagine "living" at a seaside hotel for four years the way Major Pollock did? The movie was fine. When you "live" in a hotel for a long time, and in high society Britain, everybody knows everyone else's business. This can make for an interesting story. I was amazed to read however that two of the ensemble of actors won Academy Awards,

    A bit stagy, but performances from Kerr, Niven, Lancaster, Hayward and Hiller plus superior camerawork elevate this into the stratosphere.
