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!!!
