A Stunning Vintage Photograph of Ethel Barrymore



“For an actress to be a success, she must have the face of a Venus, the brains of a Minerva, the grace of Terpsichore, the memory of a Macaulay, the figure of Juno, and the hide of a rhinoceros.” – Ethel Barrymore (1879 – 1959)

The beautiful Ethel Barrymore, stage actress and Broadway performer, was considered by many to be among the finest actresses of her generation. She was also the aunt of actor John Drew Barrymore, and the great-aunt of actress Drew Barrymore.
