John Barrymore was a stage and film actor whose credits date all the way back to 1912. A star in the silent era, his career declined significantly in the thirties in part due to his heavy drinking. His final film appearance was in 1941 when he played himself in Playmates. He died on May 29, 1942 from cirrhosis of the liver and kidney failure.
