Maurice Barrymore on America
Maurice Barrymore (1847-1905), born in England but later moved to the United States where he became an actor, and sired a family of actors (John, Lionel and Ethel). Great-grandfather of Drew Barrymore.
An English friend once scoffed at Maurice Barrymore's enthusiasm for his adopted country. "Why," he said, "we could go over to America and beat the daylights out of it any day."
