> WHAT A PRIVILEGE TO MEET YOU AND HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TALK WITH YOU

I AM A FAN OF YOURS

WELL, THANK YOU, I APPRECIATE THAT THE STAGE AND THE ONSCREEN VERSION, FILM VERSION OF BARRYMORE.

THERE IS A 15-YEAR GAP BETWEEN

REALLY?

I GUESS I'D FORGOTTEN THAT

WHAT WERE SOME OF YOU CONCERNS AS YOU APPROACHED THE PROJECT?

GET ACTUALLY MORE CINEMATIC, AND YOU KNOW, DISAPPEAR OFF, AND TAKE THE STORY AWAY FROM THE STAGE AND GO BEYOND, WHICH W DID, BUT VERY BRIEFLY.

SIMPLY BECAUSE WE'D RUN OUT OF MONEY.

BUT IT WORKED THE WAY IT WAS AND IT WAS BEAUTIFULLY DONE BY ERIK CANUEL, WHO IS A FRENCH CANADIAN DIRECTOR.

KNEW EXACTLY WHEN TO LEAVE THE STAGE AND COME BACK TO IT.

I LOVED WORKING WITH HIM I WISH IT HAD BEEN LONGER.

HOW HARD IS IT TO PERFORM WITHOUT AN AUDIENCE WHEN YOU'R SUPPOSED TO BE PLAYING AN ACTO WHO'S PLAYING TO A LARGE AUDIENCE

WELL, WE DID IT, THE WHOL THING IN FRONT OF AN AUDIENCE, AND FILMED IT.

SO THAT THEY COULD USE BITS FROM THE, YOU KNOW, THE AUDIENCE.

SO I ALREADY HAD DONE THAT

OKAY.

AND NOW I GIVE A SCREEN PERFORMANCE, AND THERE'S NOBOD OUT THERE.

IT DOESN'T MATTER BECAUSE I' PLAYING FOR THE CAMERA

DID YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT CALIBRATING YOUR PERFORMANCE DIFFERENTLY?

NO, FOR THE MOST PART I GAV THE SAME PERFORMANCE THAT I HA DONE ON THE STAGE.

JUST AS BIG, JUST AS LARGE BUT THE INTERESTING THING ABOU THE FILM, WHEN I SAW IT, WAS THAT IT WAS MUCH MORE EMOTIONA THAN THE PLAY WAS.

IN THE PLAY, WE GOT LOTS O LAUGHS AND THERE WERE MOMENTS OF -- TOUCHING MOMENTS I HOPE BUT ON THE SCREEN, IT'S JUST S WEIRD WHAT THAT CAMERA DOES.

I MEAN, I SAW THINGS BEHIND MY EYES THAT I HAD NO IDEA WERE HAPPENING AT ALL I SAID, 'MY GOD,' AND THEY CAS A SORT OF, KIND OF, SPELL OF SOME SECRET THAT WAS LYING BEHIND IT.

SOMEONE LIKE JOHN BARRYMORE, WHERE YOU FEEL AS AN AUDIENC

HOW EXHAUSTING WAS IT TO PLAY SOMEONE UNRAVEL?

I FOUND JACK BARRYMORE AS A CHARACTER EASY, SO AFTER ALL, NEEDN'T HAVE DONE ANY RESEARCH I'VE BEEN A DRUNK SINCE I WAS YOUNG KID.

SO THAT RESEARCH WAS TAKEN CAR OF I KNOW ALL ABOUT HANGOVERS AND GETTING BOMBED I LOVED PLAYING IT BECAUSE THERE WERE SO MANY NIC LAUGHS IN IT THE AUDIENCE KEPT ME BUOYANT OF JOHN BARRYMORE, WHICH

IN YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY, YO TOUCHED YOU AND GRABBED YOU?

YES, WELL, I WAS 14 AND I WHAT WAS IT ABOUT HIS STORY THAT ALREADY WAS KIND OF ENTRANCED BY THE IDEA OF THE STAGE AS A CAREER THE BOOK REALLY THRILLED M BECAUSE I REALIZED IF I COULD BE THAT HANDSOME DOG, HAVE AL THESE WONDERFUL WOMEN AND GE DRUNK EVERY NIGHT AND STILL WALK ON AND BE THE BEST 'HAMLET' OF HIS LIFETIME, THEN THE PROFESSION IS FOR ME HE WAS, AND THAT'S WHAT I WANTED TO EMULATE

BARRYMORE'S PORTRAYAL O HAMLET IS OFTEN SPOKEN OF AS HIS GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT, BUT IT WAS NEVER CAPTURED ON FILM

NO, HE WAS GOING TO DO IT O FILM THEY HAD ALREADY SET IT UP SIR ALEXANDER KORDA IN ENGLAND HAD ARRANGED IT.

THEY WERE GOING TO FILM IT AND THEN HE CAME ON SET AND HE GET ANY MORE MONEY FOR IT.

PEOPLE PULLED OUT.

IT WAS TERRIBLY SAD.

WAS SO DRUNK THAT THEY COULDN'

YOU MENTION THAT YOU'VE STUDIED JOHN BARRYMORE'S LIFE.

I'M WONDERING IN THE PROCESS O PLAYING HIM, ON STAGE AND ON FILM, IF YOU'VE DISCOVERED ANYTHING ABOUT HIS ACTING.

I WATCHED SO MANY OF HI FILMS, AND I BROUGHT AS MUCH A I COULD FROM HIS FILMS TO TH STAGE TO BE PART OF ME BUT I DID FIND THAT WE WERE NO TOO FAR AWAY FROM EACH OTHER FOR INSTANCE, MY OWN PRESENCE IS NOT -- MY OWN LOOK IS NO ENTIRELY FAR INTO HIS.

AND WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM TH MAKEUP, I MANAGED TO BECOME LITTLE BIT MORE HANDSOME WHAT I PROBABLY DID LEARN, HAVING DONE IT ON THE STAGE, WAS THE FACT THAT HE WAS VERY BRAVE.

HE WAS AN EXTRAORDINARIL COURAGEOUS MAN HE WOULD NEVER ADMIT THAT HE WAS, TO HIS WEAKNESS AND HE DIDN'T INDULGE HIMSELF IN WALLOWING IN HIS MISERY.

HE THOUGHT LIFE WAS A JOKE, WONDERFUL JOKE KATHARINE HEPBURN TOLD ME TERRIFIC STORY I ASKED HER, 'IS IT TRUE THA AFTER YOU AND HE HAD PLAYED IN 'BILL OF DIVORCEMENT,' THAT YO 'I WILL NEVER ACT WITH YOU AGAIN.'' SAID, 'MR. BARRYMORE, I WILL TO WHICH BARRYMORE REPLIED NEVER WORK WITH YOU AGAIN,' OR 'MADAM, I DIDN'T THINK YOU HAD.'

OH, OUCH.

SO I ASKED HER, SENSITIVE KID, 'WAS THAT TRUE, MS. HEPBURN?

AND SHE'S, 'AH, LET ME TELL YOU, LET ME TELL YOU, THAT IS S WRONG.

AND THEN SHE TOLD ME THE STORY OF HER FIRST APPEARANCE IN 'BILL OF DIVORCEMENT.'

SHE HADN'T MET THE LEADING MAN JACK BARRYMORE HIS STAND IN CAME ON AND DID ALL THE BUSINESS WITH HER AND SH WAS SO NERVOUS AND FINALLY, GEORGE CUKOR LINE UP THE SHOT AND SAID, 'THIS IS A TAKE.'

THE REAL BARRYMORE WALKS ON.

HE DOES ALL THE BUSINESS, AND BURST INTO TEARS AND HE STOPPED I SAID, 'WHY'D YOU BURST INT TEARS?

WAS HE MARVELOUS?'

'NO, HE WAS SO BAD HE WAS SO TERRIBLE AND I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED BROKE DOWN, AND HE TURNED TO M AND HE SAID, 'I SEE THAT YOU CARE, YOUNG LADY I'LL DO THAT AGAIN.'

AND HE CAME ON AND THIS TIME SHE SAID SHE BURST INTO TEARS AL OVER AGAIN BECAUSE HE WAS SO MAGNIFICENT.

YOU KNEW JOHN BARRYMORE'S DAUGHTER DIANA, DIDN'T YOU

I KNEW HER AS A KID I USED TO -- I WAS HER GROUPIE IN MONTREAL WHEN SHE CAME UP T HER SORT OF ACT OR SHE SANG AN TOLD STORIES AND DID A LOT O THAT UNFORTUNATELY ABOUT HER FATHER LOVE WITH I DON'T KNOW SHE WAS OBSESSED BY HIM, AND I WHOM I THINK SHE WAS A LITTLE IN DON'T BLAME HER.

BUT SHE DIED I WAS WORKING FOR KAZAN AT THE TIME I TRIED TO GET HER INTO A PLAY MACLEISH'S PLAY.

IN NEW YORK, ARCHIBALD SHE LOOKED FANTASTIC SHE HAD OBVIOUSLY CUT THE BOOZE.

SHE LOOKED TERRIFIC, SHE LOOKE SEXY, SHE WAS VIBRANT AND FUN.

AND SHE SAID, 'COULD YOU SPEAK TO KAZAN ABOUT ME DOING TH NATIONAL TOUR OF SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH?

AND SO I TOOK THE IDEA TO KAZA AND KAZAN SAID, 'OH, NO, NOT ANOTHER BARRYMORE, PLEASE.

HE'D OBVIOUSLY WORKED WITH A COUPLE I SAID, 'OH, COME ON IT WOULD MEAN SO MUCH TO HER SHE'S PULLED HERSELF TOGETHER.

SHE'S FINE SHE'S OFF THE BOOZE.

SHE LOOKS GREAT.

IT WOULD MAKE HER LIFE SO HE SAID, 'OH, ALL RIGHT.'

AND TWO WEEKS LATER I SAID, 'B THE WAY, DID YOU EVER SEE DIANA?

DID SHE COME AND DO HE READING?

HE SAID, 'YEAH, SHE WAS SO DRUNK WE HAD TO CARRY HER HOME.'

WAS SHE

SHE DIED WEEKS AFTER THAT

OH.

YEAH.

SO IT IS A TRAGIC FAMILY AND JACK'S TRAGEDY WAS I THINK BROOKS ATKINSON SAID IT BEST HE SAID IKARUS FLEW TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN.

AND THAT'S PRETTY GOOD

WHAT ARE YOU HOPING THAT AN AUDIENCE WILL TAKE AWAY FWR TH FILM ADAPTATION?

I HOPE THAT THEY'RE BOT TOUCHED AND THEY LAUGH IT IS FUNNY.

AND THEY'LL BE TOUCHED BECAUSE AS I SAY, I THINK THE FILM PERFORMANCE IS MORE EMOTIONA THAN IT WAS ON THE STAGE

WELL, IT IS GOING TO BE A JOY TO SEE WHERE YOU GO NEXT THANK YOU SO UCH MANY.

WHAT A PLEASURE.

YOU, TOO.

WE'RE VERY FORTUNATE TO BE ABL TO PRENT HIS WORK IN SUCH COMPREHENSIVE WAY FROM EARLY CAMEO PORTRAITS TO LOW HFL RELIEF POR TRATS TO HIS FRIEND AND FELLOW ARTISTS TO REDUCTIONS AFTER HIS GREAT CIVIL WAR.

HE WAS BORN IN IRELAND BUT CAM HERE TO NEW YORK AS AN INFAN AND WAS RAISED ON THE LOWER EAST SIDE HE BEGAN, AT AGE 13, WORKING A AN APPRENTICE FOR A CAMEO CUTTER AND THAT REALLY FUELLED HI INTERESTS IN BECOMING SCULPTOR IN 1867, HE WENT ABROAD TO STUDY AND TRAINED AT THE FOREMOS TRAINING GROUND FOR STUDENTS ACROSS THE WORLD AT THAT TIME.

AND SHE IS REALLY QUIT AMERICAN, IN A SENSE ST. GODHEMS WORKED WITH SEVERA DIFFERENT MODELS TO CREATE THI SCULPTURE.

GENERALLY, THIS WAS AN AMALGAMATION MOST INTERESTING IS THE FACT THAT ONE OF THE MODELS WAS A WOMAN NAMED HEDDY ANDERSON WHO WAS AN AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMA FROM SOUTH CAROLINA AND ST KWENTD LI AND SAID SHE HAD A FIGURE LIKE A GODDESS.

A REAL PERFECTIONIST IN THE CASE OF THE VICTORY HE ARRANGED DRAPEIES ON FOUR DIFFERENT MODELS AND IT TOOK SOMETHING LIKE TWO WEEKS TO GE THE LOOK HE WAS AFTER.
