Comments about Grand Hotel (BD) Blu-ray:

This is the best I've seen Grand Hotel look and sound. It still is a little soft and grainy, but that can be expected for a film from the early 1930s. I think the Blu-ray mastering is very well done, though. I see no image enhancement, no grain manipulation, and the detail is strong, even on the softer shots (some of which were shot that way on purpose).

The soundtrack is mono, but very solid with minimal background noise.

Comments about Grand Hotel (BD) Blu-ray:

During the heyday of the studio system, MGM once boasted that it had "more stars than there are in the heavens" under contract. So what better way to employ those contract players than in a star-studded motion picture that was suited to their dramatic talents. There were the established stars, the two Barrymores, Beery, and, of course, the Swedish sphinx, Garbo, and stars in the making such as Lucille Fay LeSueur, aka, Joan Crawford, who made the most of this opportunity to shine. The proven formula worked out so well for Hollywood that it has employed it to the present day. The Hollywood establishment thought highly enough of the film to bestow it with the coveted Oscar for that year. Footnote: As is sometimes the case, a remake,"Weekend at the Waldorf", relocating the hotel from Berlin to New York, and appearing high profile stars of the time, did not do as well at the boxoffice.
