dolores costello 1903-1979

"The most preposterously
lovely creature in all the world." - John Barrymore, 1925

Cry, laugh but never whine-Dolores Costello

john barrymore and dolores costello were married for seven years. like her granddaughter drew, dolores had a lisp. imagine the grief she suffered when making the transition into talking films. however, she acted for over thirty years and spent her later life growing avocados! way to go dolores!
