Trivia

The "Hotel St. Gregory" was based on the Hotel Roosevelt in New Orleans, which at the time the novel was written was in the process of being sold by its elderly owner Seymour Weiss (who started his career managing the hotel's barber shop) to the owners of the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. Coincidentally, when the novel was adapted as a TV series, the Fairmont San Francisco was used a film stand-in for the "St. Gregory" (with the show's location changed to San Francisco.) See more »

Great Stars
20 July 2011 | by williwawSee all my reviews

Warner Bros cast Rod Taylor, a perfect leading man, in this film directed by Richard Quine who made those great Kim Novak films at Columbia -Strangers When We Meet, Pal Joey, Notorious Landlady-when Hotel features two legendary stars Melvyn Douglas and Merle Oberon, both given wonderfully rich parts to play. Also cast Richard Conte and Michael Rennie. This is a film where the action on the set was likely to be even better than when the cameras rolled. Kevin McCarthy is properly tough minded. Lovely Catherine Spaak has the nominal female lead.

Merle Oberon one of the cinema's great all time beauties steals the movie. The real show stopper is Ms. Oberon then 60 but looking 35 and gorgeous to behold, and I recall Merle Oberon wore her own fantastic jewel collection in Hotel. While Oberon's peers like Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Ann Sothern, and Olivia De Havilland were starring in horror films to stay in the public eye, Merle Oberon who in her legendary career worked with Brando, Cooper, Wyler, Laughton, et al stayed above the fray and lived the live of a real Movie Queen.
