Grand Hotel is a 1932 American Pre-Code Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer drama film directed by Edmund Goulding. This film begins with the statement of Doctor Otternschlag, a disfigured veteran of World War I and a permanent resident of the Grand Hotel in Berlin: “Grand Hotel. People coming, going. Nothing ever happens”. A few days later, the comment becomes ironic because of everything happened at the hotel, from romantic love story to robberies and then to a sudden death..
