Barrymore, Exclusive Film Screening
This film adaptation of playwright William Luce’s Barrymore depicts actor John Barrymore as he prepares for a revival of his 1920 Broadway triumph in Richard III. The year is 1942, and Barrymore is far past his prime. It appears he has booked the theater simply to perform alone, while he drinks and reminisces about his family and the profession of acting. It leads him to look back on the highs and lows of his stunning career and remarkable life.
