Robert O. & L. Barrymore


Recommended Posts

I believe I've heard Osborne talking about Barrymore "before and after his accident."

But Barrymore was crippled due to arthritis.

Louis B. Mayer supplied the actor with cocaine, for which Barrymore was eternally grateful.

"I don't know where he got it," the MGM fixture stated, "but I shall always be thankful."

I read somewhere that Barrymore did suffer from arthritis but that he had fallen and his hip never properly healed (maybe due to the RA). He's on crutches in a couple of films until he just gave it up and worked from his chair.

While Barrymore suffered from RA, he had an accident that resulted in his breaking his hip. The break didn't heal properly and that combined with the RA, caused Barrymore to finally end up in a wheelchair.
