The Blue Hotel (1977)

Only available in Canada, United States

Nebraska in the 1880s is 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 represents 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.

This production is part of the American Short Story Collection .

The Blue Hotel and many of your other movies should get zero stars they are so bad. Gaiam TV is really lacking in quality movies. I know you are new at this but I am really disappointed. I will try to stick in there with you but I am not sure how long I can take it. Please improve your selection so I can stay.
