Featuring one of the greatest film quotes of all time, "I want to be alone," the star-studded cast in GRAND HOTEL (1932) makes one feel anything but alone. MGM’s 1932 drama includes notables such as Greta Garbo, John Barrymore, Joan Crawford, Lionel Barrymore and many more. According to Robert Osborne, casting all of these stars in a single film “was the MGM style” and the studio “often packed their films with superstars but never with a more impressive group than in GRAND HOTEL.” Learn more at the AFI Catalog
