Heartbreak Hotel

It's that time again! Time for a fun post. I was so unexpectedly surprised by the responses I got to my "It's All Coming Back To Me Now" article, and I thought I would try and venture into popular song with a classic film territory again. So, I found a song that fits a theme to classic movies and their use of public spaces for intense drama, the song "Heartbreak Hotel" by Whitney Houston with Faith Evans and Kelly Price from the 1998 "My Love Is Your Love" album, which the song is in the audio and the video is in the videos. One of the most common of those spaces is hotels. There is such fleeting opportunity for drama in a place where people come in and out for whatever reasons in their lives, and for a little period of time, the time they spend there changes. But, before I venture into this fun look at the use of hotels in classic films, I just thought I would say this disclaimer: I do not hate men, I just think the idea of breaking up with someone in a hotel is tacky. I also think that if men wants to be with someone other than the person they are currently attached to, they should not string the one they are attached to along while they perform in extracurricular activities on the side. Again, I do not hate men, I just think that there is needs to be more personal responsibility taken and better sense of spacial environments to do so. So, let's have fun!

Grand Hotel, Separate Tables and The Strange Love of Martha Ivers. I have enjoyed each of these films; though I find that Grand Hotel seems a bit dated in its style. Still an important film that was a huge success. This reminds me, there is a very engrossing film called Hotel Berlin about the end of Nazi Germany- fine cast headed by Raymond Massey and Henry Daniel. -haven't thought of that for years. it was made in the spring of 1945.
