Review

Our Score
An unusually ambitious little British "quota quickie", this gives Frank Vosper the kind of role associated with the German silent film tragedian Emil Jannings. As an elderly former Russian Grand Duke reduced to being night manager of a hotel, Vosper is given notice rather than the promotion he expected. Adding a dash of Grand Hotel melodrama, he sorts out some of the guests' problems on his final night. Scripted by Gerard Fairlie from a play by John Chancellor, this is one of the better late works of pioneer director George Pearson.
