YMMV: Grand Hotel
- Adaptation Displacement: Of both the novel and the stage play based on it.
- Memetic Mutation: "I vant to be alone," thanks to it fitting so well with Greta Garbo's sudden retirement from public life.
- Moral Event Horizon: Presying crosses this when he kills the Baron just because he was trying to steal his pocket book.
- So Okay, It's Average: This movie has been used as an example of the Academy's questionable judgment in early years — not exactly bad, but it didn't age well.
- The Woobie: Kringelein and Grusinskaya, initially.
