Looking Back: Grand Hotel

I go back and do a video review for the MGM classic Grand Hotel starring an ensemble of Golden Age actors, like Greta Garbo, John Barrymore, Joan Crawford, Lionel Barrymore, and Wallace Berry. The film follows five people who are staying at the famous Grand Hotel in Berlin, where their lives intertwine and drama ensues. It was one of the first ensemble pieces of its kind, and it helped pave the way for future movies of the same type. Learn what I think about it in the video below.
