After the Duke Michael Rennie and Duchess Merle Oberon of Lanbourne check in, the Duke is involved in a vehicular homicide after he has too much to drink. His car is traced back to the St. Gregory by hotel detective Dupere Richard Conte, who blackmails the Duke.

    Carmen sings McRae

    One of the outstanding components of this drama is the music. You cannot hear Carmen McRae sing these songs anywhere else. Johnny Keeting's song, 'This Year' is for the spiritual at heart and McRae aches in all the right places throughout her rendition. In addition, Merle Oberon is heart-stoppingly stunning in her scene in the French Quarter while sizing up the detective who is about to whitemail her and her husband the Duke played appropriately by Michael Rennie. Who can forget Catherine Spaak describing her 'situation'.

    Has everything; Gorgeous score, romance, intrigue, drama, comedy.

    I taped this from a premium channel many years ago, and never tire of seeing it again and again. I, too, love Carmen McRae, and her rendition of 'This Year' by Johnny Keating just knocks me out. I've been trying for years to find it in an album or CD by Carmen, but it seems she didn't record it, or at least I can't find it. Ever since I saw Rod Taylor and Lloyd Bochner in early television's 'Hong Kong', I've been hooked. He was beautiful in those halcyon days, and weren't we all. I'll keep looking for 'This Year', and also for a digital version of 'Hotel.'
