NOTES

"I like to be introduced as America's foremost actor. It precludes the necessity for further effort." --remark attributed to Barrymore by The New York Times May 30, 1942. and by Halliwell's Filmgoer's Companion, 8th ed.

When a woman discovered Barrymore relieving himself in a ladies' room, she sniffed, "Mr. Barrymore, this is for ladies!" Turning around without zipping his pants up first, Barrymore responded, "So, my dear, is this!" --story recounted in Halliwell's Filmgoer's Companion, 8th ed.
