He abandoned early plans of a career as an artist for acting, despite professing a loathing of that profession. From 1938 he acted from a wheelchair due to a hip injury and advancing arthritis.

Despite Barrymore's nomination for an Academy Award as Best Director, Leonard Maltin names Madame X as among the worst films ever made.  -30-
