to be or not to be a barrymore
my love for john barrymore is as strong as ever. between 'svengali' and 'grand hotel' one can get the picture very clearly. this gorgeous and brilliant actor will blow your mind and break your heart.
as the conniving hypnotist he is very creepy and it is obvious how dedicated to his work he was. he was responsible for the casting of marion marsh who, at age 17, was as precious as the flower tended by 'the little prince.' she had just the face needed to act as a mirror to his soul.
