Bogarde's Hotel Splendide



Bogarde's Hotel Splendide

The cinematic hotel that never was a real hotel.

Location: 25 Mornington Crescent, London

Description: The sign up on the end gable of this house, in poor state of repair, is from the filming of a 1950's picture.

We've seen a reference it was used in The Gentle Gunman (1952) as a flat used by an IRA gunman.

More likely is it was used a cheaper set for the 1932 Brit flick Hotel Splendide starring comedian Jerry Verno as Jerry Mason, a publicity manager, who inherits a seaside hotel but is approached by a gang of crooks who have buried their loot from a robbery on the site where the hotel now stands. Mason manages to find the loot before the gang and claims the reward.

The film was made partly at Ealing Studio's, so perhaps this was nearer to film than a trip to the seaside!

The Government Art Collection includes a splendid (sorry) painting (pictured) by Arturo Di Stefano of this location.
