Welcome to New York’s posh Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. Your suite is waiting – and so are romance, glamour, comedy and drama played with great flair by an all-star cast. A remake of Grand Hotel updated to the waning days of World War II, Week-end at the Waldorf follows the fortunes of a lonely movie star (Ginger Rogers), an on-the-make stenographer (Lana Turner), a wounded flyer (Van Johnson), a war correspondent (Walter Pidgeon), a wheeler-dealer (Edward Arnold) and a gossip columnist (Robert Benchley) whose lives crisscross over two days of martinis, mistaken identities and marriages real and faux. The film’s big budget (every dime shows on the screen) paid off handsomely: Week-end became one of 1945’s biggest hits.

**Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.

Comments about this product:

The "trite and contrived" remark is mostly because the plot and some of the dialogue are a bit dated. However, I thought the depiction of what life was like as the war was ending was spot on, as was the glamour of the Waldorf in elegant black and white. The hotel has stills from the movie in lobby cases to this very day. Seeing Ginger Rogers and early Lana Turner in the same movie was a treat.
