Grand Hotel’s most famous line isn’t actually true: “People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.” Edmund Goulding’s Best Picture winner is set entirely in the eponymous Berlin hotel, which plays host to much sadness and intrigue among its ensemble cast (which includes Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford and a couple of Barrymores). The overlapping narratives vary in tone but not in quality: Grand Hotel is a classic that still demands to be seen on the big screen.
