Hotel 1967; I saw this film on TCM; a few years ago. Its from an Arthur Hailey book. He is famous for writing books about regular ordinary things. Like Airport which also became a movie. Which did much better than Hotel. The problem with Hotel was for me it was very boring. Even with Rod Taylor as it star, and by the way is star by 1967 was fading very fast like a meteor. Well we had some deccnt performances by Karl Malden, and Melvin Douglas.
