John Barrymore was the black sheep of America’s most illustrious acting family. Celebrated for his charisma and matinee idol looks, he was for awhile America’s most popular actor. Famous for his stage roles in Richard III and Hamlet, he also made more than 50 films. But alcoholism soon dissipated his talents, and he became known more for his Falstaffian behavior and outrageous high jinx than for his art. In Barrymore, William Luce has adapted his acclaimed Broadway hit especially for audio in this stunning production.
The radio program is very funny and bittersweet! Love Colonial Radio Theater programs. I have listened to this radio show several times and it is always super! Gets better each time.
A Great Program
I read a review of this program on some audio website that called it one of the best full cast audios ever produced. Upon reflection, I must agree that it IS!
