Lionel Barrymore was an actor from the 1900s to the 1950s. He was the brother of John Barrymore and Ethel Baryrmore. Some of his movies include: Rasputin and the Empress (as Rasputin), It's a Wonderful Life (as Mr. Potter), Free Soul (winner of the Best Actor Academy Award for this film), Madame X (nominated for the Best Director Academy Award for this film), On Borrowed Time, Key Largo, Grand Hotel, Dinner at Eight, Captains Courageous, and as Dr. Gillespie in the many "Dr. Kildare" movies. Note that in his later years, he played most of his performances in a wheelchair, leading many to think he was paralyzed! However, it was a combination of two hip fractures as well as arthritis that limited his mobility in later years (by 1938, Barrymore used a wheelchair exclusively and never walked again).
Artist: Lionel Barrymore
Important Added Info: Note that this portfolio contains 4 gold leaf etchings of Lionel Barrymore's artwork! The etchings are somewhat reflective and difficult to accurately photograph but they are quite striking when viewed in person!

UPDATED 02/14/2012: Note that a knowledgeable collector tells us that this portfolio is from 1968 and not the 1950s as we initially listed.

Condition: very good. There are stains at upper right in the front cover of the portfolio. The prints contained on the inside are in quite nice condition!
