In the decadent Grand Hotel of Berlin, several stories take place in the hotel where "nothing ever happens." Grusinskaya, a frustrated ballet dancer (who "vants to be alone"), falls for the bankrupt Baron Felix von Geigern, who first tried to rob her of her jewelry. Preysing, a businessman, tries to save his struggling company and begins a fling with his new stenographer. A dying man once a mere bookkeeper for Preysing, named Kringelein, is spending his last days alive in this expensive hotel and enjoying the luxuries never afforded him in the past.
This all-star cast soap opera won the Best Picture Oscar in 1932.
