The 43 Year Old Lionel Barrymore
26 February 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry. Silent films don't do it for me. I appreciate that Barrymore was one of the pioneers of filmmaking with his writing, directing and acting skills, but in terms of entertainment for a diverse audience, this does nothing for a multi-cultural audience.
