-- Minor-league "Grand Hotel" set in a London airport where anxious characters fretfully waiting for a flight delayed by fog conditions. As the fog deepens, the plot diddles with the tax problems of movie mogul Orson Welles, the merger being fought by tractor manufacturer Rod Taylor and devoted secretary Maggie Smith, the flat bank book of dutchess Margaret Rutherford and the discomforts of pampered wife Liz Taylor at leaving tycoon husband Richard Burton for continental hustler Louis Jourdan. Director Anthony Asquith's glossy treatment of this soap-opera stew turns it into grade-A trash, of interest mainly to students of bad taste. (A-III) (br)
