TV Guide review

Hotel Splendide (1932)

Verno is a publicity manager who inherits a seaside hotel. He moves in, only to discover the property was built on a field used by jewel thieves to bury their loot. He accidentally finds the hidden booty before the crooks and collects a handsome reward. Not much of a comedy; most notable as an early effort for the director of The Red Shoes.
