Meanwhile, the great dancer 'Madam' is despondent and does not want to perform. The Baron slips into her room to steal her pearls, but then tries to comfort her. Prizering is at the hotel with an attractive stenographer, hoping to close a big business deal. And yet there are still those who say that 'nothing ever happens here.' Written by Snow Leopard

A Very Funny Parody!!!
12 December 2004 | by (Roma, Italia) – See all my reviews

A delightful spoof of "Grand Hotel" (1932), one of the greatest masterpiece of the history of Movie. It is a newly discovered 1933 Vitaphone short, produced by Warner Brothers, and directed by Roy Mack with a group of extraordinary actors. The five main players make some delicious parodies of Garbo, the two Barrymore, Beery and Crawford. In this picture there are some very amusing scene - like when Geraldine Dvorak make an extraordinary emphatic parody of Greta Garbo with a pair of enormous men's shoes - and pleasant musics and choreographies.

Very funny!!!
