Based on Vicki Baum's novel and produced by Irving Thalberg, this film is about the lavish Grand Hotel in Berlin, a place where "nothing ever happens." That statement proves to be false, however, as the story follows an intertwining cast of characters over the course of one tumultuous day. Greta Garbo is Grusinskaya, a ballerina whose jewels are coveted by Baron von Geigern (John Barrymore), a thief who fancies Flaemmchen (Joan Crawford), a stenographer and the mistress of Preysing (Wallace Beery), businessman boss of Kringelein (Lionel Barrymore), a terminally ill bookkeeper who is under the care of alcoholic physician Dr. Otternschlag (Lewis Stone). Grand Hotel won Best Picture at the 1932 Academy Awards.–All Movie

The Readers’ Forum, the lively book discussion group of the Cranford Public Library, welcomes new members at any time. The group will discuss “Orange Is the New Black” (2010) by Piper Kerman. With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Kerman barely resembled the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money ten years before. But her past caught up with her. Sentenced to 15 months at the federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna became inmate #11187-424. From her first strip search to her final release, Kerman learned to navigate prison life, with its strictly enforced codes of behavior and arbitrary rules. This non-fiction story offers a rare look into the lives of women in prison.
