A film adaptation of playwright William Luce's "Barrymore" that depicts actor John Barrymore as he prepares for a revival of his 1920 Broadway triumph in "Richard III." The year is 1942 and Barrymore is far past his prime. It appears he has booked the theater simply to perform alone, while he drinks and reminisces about his family and the profession of acting. Meanwhile, a stage manager stands in the wings, prompting Barrymore with Shakespeare's dialogue, but the actor appears to be otherwise distracted. Christopher Plummer's Tony Award-winning tour de force is now a new motion picture. Presented by New York-based alternative content distributors BY Experience and Executive Producers Steve Kalafer and Peter LeDonne.
