Grand Hotel : I Want To Be Alone

The first film that I ever saw with Greta Garbo was Grand Hotel. To this day it is my favourite of all her films.

Grusinskaya. The temperamental Russian Ballerina.

Both Barrymore brothers star and also a young Joan Crawford at her beautifulist.

Menschen im Hotel was the book that inspired the film and Hollywood designed their GRAND HOTEL on the Adlon in Berlin.

History about the Adlon Hotel and then my fave scene from Grand Hotel :o)

BTW : The image above of the cast is fake. Garbo and Crawford NEVER actually met properly. Crawford says that she saw Garbo walking down some stairs, that was it. They had no scenes together. Garbo was renowned for working on a closed set.
