Shoestring Latin Grand Hotel
13 October 2018 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

Edgar G. Ulmer was used to far, far lower budgets than he had to play with on this inconsequential little bonbon, and saw to it that what little money was available to him was up there on the screen as his camera glided about Edward C. Jewell's night club set creating a reasonably plush and atmospheric mixture of melodrama and latin song & dance.

The film also benefits from an interesting cast of familiar faces with Marc Lawrence supplying the menace, Rene Riano supplying cynical wit as a merry serial divorcee and Sonia Sorel in a vivid cameo as the film's blonde sacrificial lamb. Although top-billed and famed for his role in Ulmer's 'Detour', however, Tom Neal is hardly in it.
