Barrymore daughter visits city with acting company
1936 Crowds will flock miles to see Katharine Cornell or Ethel Barrymore, but when it's Ethel Barrymore's daughter they are to see - that's a "colt of a different color." Thus, is effect, says Ethel Barrymore Colt, with complete lack of the Barrymore arrogancy.
Daughter of the first lady of the stage and niece of Lionel and John Barrymore, the 23-year-old actress came to Lubbock in a popular priced automobile, shared a room, not a suite, with an actress in her company, and with a friendly smile spoke of "earning a living."
Dressed in a perky hat with a feather, a plaid ensemble and a sport coat, the young actress spoke of her work. "I just want to make a living out of the stage," she said, but confessed that she would rather not eat than to leave the stage.
