The Wedding Hotel

The Wedding Hotel (German: Das Hochzeitshotel) is a 1944 German comedy film directed by Carl Boese and starring Karin Hardt, René Deltgen and Walter Janssen. Due to Allied bombing raids on German cities like Berlin, much of the film was shot around Kitzbühel in Tyrol. It was one of a number of light-hearted German films made in the final year of the Third Reich.[1]

A group of artists and journalists enjoy a series of romantic entanglements in a country hotel.

When another female guest arrives, everyone assumes she is the author, despite her repeated assertions to the contrary.[2]
