Grand Hotel

3

You like Short Cuts and Magnolia? Then take a look at Grand Hotel, the 1932 great-granddaddy of multi-plotline movies, its stagey theatrics excused by MGM star-power: Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford, John and Lionel Barrymore...

Set in a plush Berlin hotel, it sees the fates of guests and staff members intersecting in melodramatic fashion. This is Golden Era Hollywood-studio style at its most opulent. It hasn't aged the best, but you do get to hear Garbo say, "I vahnt to be alone" for the first time ever.
