Minnie & the Barrymores

I listed another glamourous Minnie pendant. Did you know that the phrase "Glamour Girl" came to be because of Ethel Barrymore, Drew Barrymore's great aunt? I just watched "The Barrymore's" recently and learned that she was the first actor ever that stirred the media to track her every move which we now refer to as "paparazzi" (in Italian, that translates to mosquito...which we then understand to mean "pest").

I only knew of her as an old woman in film, but her heart was not there at was the theatre, the stage that enthralled her. And look how beautiful she was. I was also completely unaware that her father, mother AND grandmother had all performed on the stage as well. I'd never even heard of her father, Maurice, before...and up until my thirties, I was an acting buff and proud of the trivia I knew of this institution! Surprise, surprise.
