John Drew Barrymore

One of the most controversial actors of his day, John Drew Barrymore was born into an acting dynasty and appeared in several films, but his hard living reputation and several spells in jail saw him unable to find work in the US and instead, like many actors during the period, he travelled to Italy to find an industry desperate for imported talent.

He appeared in several adventure films including a few Pepla and I have reviewed one of his most unique entries, the horror themed Roma Contro Roma (1964). If you want to read the full story of the Barrymore family’s black sheep, I have also uploaded an all new biography.
