Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00045122: JOHN BARRYMORE JR.

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rather scarce vintage blue fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan album page, acquired in-person by an autograph hound named Brenda in the 1950s. In good condition and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. The son of John Barrymore and Dolores Costello, handsome John Barrymore, Jr.'s promising career on the stage and screen was cut short by drug abuse and bizarre behavior, which included becoming a recluse and taking up residence in a California forest to live a mystical existence. In the 1960s, he starred in two low-budget Italian horror films, Rome Against Rome (1964) and Death on the Fourposter (1964).
