GRAND HOTEL

Another rare scene from the 1932 Grand Hotel. Here Joan Crawford and Wally Beery (as Preysing) share a dramatic scene. Dig that beautiful Art Deco bed! It's hard to believe this film is over 80 years old. c) MGM

In 1932 MGM presented Grand Hotel, a big-budget, multi-star adaptation of Vicki Baum’s famous novel. Much has been written about this extravaganza, which featured top studio talent Garbo, Joan Crawford, Lionel and John Barrymore and Wally Beery. But here are a couple of unsual stills that havent been printed for the hundredth-time! Enjoy!!

A rare photo from the 1932 MGM classic, Grand Hotel. Here the great Lionel Barrymore as Kringelein counsels Joan Crawford who portrayed Flaemmchen the lovelorn stenographer. The film boasted an all-star cast including Lewis Stone, John Barrymore, Greta Garbo and Wally Beery. It was a tremendous hit at the time of its release with Depression-era audiences and quickly became a cinema classic. The screenplay was based on Vicki Baum's best-selling novel. c) MGM
