Sidney Drew in a Dramatic Role
6 July 2016 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Sidney Drew is the master painter of the title. He takes on Courtenay Foote as his apprentice. However, Drew's eyes and powers are in rapid decline and Foote can see the result in his master's work. One evening, Rosemary Theby comes downstairs to find the younger man working on her uncles painting -- and doing a better job than her uncle is capable of.

Sidney Drew was the uncle of the famous Barrymores (John, Lionel and Ethel). He began his career at Vitagraph and soon established himself as a fine screen comic, adept at playing neurotic middle class people, along with his second wife. Together the two wrote, directed and starred in a fine series of comedies for Vitagraph and later for their own company, releasing through Metro. When Sidney's son, S. Rankin Drew, was killed during the First World War, he went into a decline and soon died. In this rare straight role, he offers a fine dramatic performance.

If you wish to take a look at this movie, a good copy is on the Eye Institute site on Youtube.
