Quotes

Walter Baumler: There are many like her in Germany. Yesterday she was a NAZI, today she says she isn't. Mark it, if a man like you who knows these people so well can still be deceived, think of the danger to those who don't have your experience. I know what's happened to you. Yep. You were tricked by your decency, by your humanity. You couldn't believe anyone capable of such deceit. But, you've got to realize, NAZIs never change.

"Nazis never change."
3 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Interesting movie about the goings-on of various characters at the Hotel Berlin near the end of WWII. Specifically the search for a member of the German underground who has escaped from a concentration camp. Not surprisingly, this is from the author of Grand Hotel. Unlike the film adaptation of Grand Hotel, this one doesn't have an all-star cast but it does have a cast of solid character actors. Raymond Massey and Faye Emerson are standouts but really the whole cast is good. Peter Lorre steals the few scenes he's in. It's a pretty good though not great WWII movie with a unique setting and some frank (for the time) talk about concentration camps and the Holocaust. Also, if you ever wanted to see Alan Hale as a Nazi, here's your chance.
