John Barrymore was born under the given name John Sidney Blyth on February 15, 1882 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. He was an American Actor, known for Grand Hotel (1932), Don Juan (1926), Dinner at Eight (1933), John Barrymore's first movie on record is from 1912. He was married to Katherine Corri Harris (1910-1917), Blanche Oelrichs (1920-1928), Dolores Costello (1928-1934) and Elaine Barrie (1936-1940). John Barrymore died on May 29, 1942 in Los Angeles, California, USA. His last motion picture on file dates from 1941.
Biographical Notes in German: Der dritte Sohn des amerikanischen Theaterschauspielerehepaars Maurice Barrymore und Georgie Drew, Bruder der Schauspieler Ethel und Lionel Barrymore. Sein Bühnendebüt gab John Barrymore, eigentlich JohnSidney Blyth, im Jahre 1903, und wurde, wie seine Geschwister, bald ein gefeierter Bühnenstar. Erste Filmrollen sind aus dem Jahre 1913 bekannt, möglicherweise spielte er aber bereits früher in einige Filmen mit.
John Barrymore schaffte mühelos den Sprung zum Tonfilm, vor allem auch dank seiner sonoren Stimme, und MGM-Produzent Irving Thalberg gelang es, für Rasputin and the Empress die drei Barrymores in einem Film zu vereinen. Mit Greta Garbo spielte er in Grand Hotel, mit Jean Harlow in Dinner at Eight. Seine Alkoholexzesse wurden aber zunehmend zu seinem Handycap, und Ende der Dreissiger Jahre spielte er meist nur noch in B-Pictures.
Neben zahlreiche Affairen war John Barrymore viermat verheiratet, mit Katherine Corri Harris (1910-1917), Blanche Oelrichs (1920-1928), Dolores Costello (1928-1934) und Elaine Barrie (1936-1940). Sein Schauspieltalent und seine Neigung zu Alkoholexzessen schienen sich allesamt vererbt zu haben: Tochter Diana, Schauspielerin mit einer kurzen Karriere, stammte aus der Ehe mit Blanche Oelrichs. Schauspielerin Dolores Costello war die Mutter seines Sohnes John Drew Barrymore und Grossmutter von Drew Barrymore. [lhg 2014]
