The day has finally come. The Barrymore Trilogy Blogathon has now arrived, and will be continuing on until Ethel Barrymore’s Birthday on Saturday August 15th.


Below are the list of entries. I will be updating the page daily to exhibit all the submissions as they come in. I must say that everyone has put in an outstanding effort, and you have all done the Barrymore’s proud.

A big thank you to all who have participated, and I look forward to reading the entries. This is for you Ethel.

  1. That Other Critic

    Thanks a bundle for letting me in, it was fun, and I watched a silent movie for once! Yeah, I’ve kind of neglected that entire era in my buffing up on film history, and in fact am missing large chunks of the entire black-and-white era. I’ll get there…eventually. šŸ™‚
