At Immortal Ephemera ( here ) there’s loads of photos tracing the Barrymores. Did you know that Diana Barrymore was married to Bramwell Fletcher ( see…you know who he is ) and that her mother had an affair with a well-known children’s books author? Did you know Dolores Costello married a man older than her mother, and Ethel’s cousin (an aviator in WWI) has a plaque with his name on it in Central Park (near Strawberry Fields)? And what IS Ethel Barrymore’s relationship to a Colt .45 firearm?
These are some of the tidbits I learned as I was reading up on Ethel Barrymore. If you’re a little curious about Ethel’s thoughts about working with her brother’s in the only film the trio did together ( “Rasputin and the Empress” ) you can read Once Upon A Screen’s account by clicking the trio’s photo below. Did you know that here on Manhattan’s 47th Street is the theater the Schuberts BUILT specifically for Ethel Barrymore? You didn’t? Well I’m here to tell you…or show you, in six minutes. Yep, click on foto And here are other photos of the Barrymore clan hot-linked for you to check out at your leisure.
