The Barrymore Trilogy Blogathon has now come to a close, and with the success of my first blogathon dedicated to the Royal Family of Hollywood, I will be making this an annual event.


During the course of the past few days, I have received a multitude of fabulous entries, which cover all members of the Barrymore family, and all aspects of their life and career.

I would like to say a big thank you to all of you who have participated. It’s been a super fun event, and you have all done Ethel proud. I look forward to the ‘Second Annual Barrymore Trilogy Blogathon’ next year. See you all in 2016.


This is for you Ethel.
