'Menschen Im Hotel'

Not every poster in the exhibition is from a musical. This German poster designed by the artist Meinss for the 1932 Oscar-winning best picture "Grand Hotel." Greta Garbo, who played a Russian prima ballerina, was just one of the many stars of the melodrama but was made the focal point because she had the biggest following in Europe.
