Grand Hotel is superbly acted and finely produced.

In Grand Hotel one finds the perfection of realistic acting. This was to be expected, for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has assembled in this production the most notable cast which has ever appeared In any one film.

Most of the players give impossibly bad performances-they chew up the camera. But if you want to see what screen glamour used to be, and what, originally, "stars" were, this is perhaps the best example of all time.

Each and every performer in the screened "Grand Hotel" does a remarkable piece of work. To us, Garbo is the supreme of magnificence.

As it is, the hotel is well filled.

A commercial picture of high box office potential, first by assembling the most impressive aggregation so far of strictly Bradstreet screen names, and then by filming the play practically unaltered in form.

Less effective as a movie than as a dazzling parade of star iconography.

It is a production thoroughly worthy of all the talk it has created and the several motion-picture luminaries deserve to feel very proud of their performances, particularly Greta Garbo and Lionel Barrymore.

It hasn't aged as well as some Oscar-winners, but neither is it as dated as, for example, Cimarron.
