The Blue Hotel
Starring David Warner, and James Keach
Directed by Jan Kadar (Academy Award - "The Shop on Main Street")
Nebraska in the 1880's& bleak, lonely, and far from what you'd expect The Wild West to be. But for a naïve Swedish immigrant, the frontier parlor of "THE BLUE HOTEL" represent the quintessential western fantasy.
No one can convince The Swede that his dime-store notions about The West are foolish. He sees murderous intentions all around him& and in his terror he turns everybody against him.
Inevitably the Swede attracts tragedy. However, who is responsible? The negative Swede? Or the cliquish hotel guests? Academy Award-winner Jan Kadar ("The Shop on Main Street" ) directs this timely story of how society punishes outsiders for being different.
