Drew this AM on Today rockin' the "You Can't Take it With You" hairstyle....



Memorable quote: "A fish may love a bird, but where would they live?"

Great Granduncle Lionel - the inspiration....



Memorable Quote"

"This is the age of insincerity. The movies had the misfortune to come along in the twentieth century, and because they appeal to the masses there can be no sincerity in them."

I wonder if it's true that Lionel was doped up on morphine due to his horrible arthritic pain. I like to think so.

Good lord, I can't stand Lionel Barrymore. LOVE John, though.

Note that Drew looks like a "Drew," not a "Barrymore." She has the square face, snub nose and big eyes of Lionel, Ethel and their mother Georgiana. The "Barrymore" side has the long face and hawk-nose of John.

You can definitely tell she's a Barrymore.

An old SNL skit had Jan Hooks as a stroked out Bette Davis and one of her many ramblings about old Hollywood was this: "THERE'S ONLY ONE THING WORSE THAN A MAN - AND THAT'S LIONEL BAAAARRYMORE."
