Larry Karaszewski on

Hotel

Released 1967
Distributor Warner Bros.

As the manager of a sprawling New Orleans hotel, Rod Taylor has his hands full in this all-star soap opera from 1967. Written by Airport scribe Arthur Hailey, Hotel follows a similar boilerplate as the trials and tribulations of our beleaguered cast come to a head under claustrophobic conditions. Karl Malden and Kevin McCarthy play two of Taylor’s more unscrupulous guests while Hollywood stalwart Richard Quine (Bell, Book and Candle) handles the directing chores.
