Fowler obviously knew John Barrymore very well and did a very good job on this bio as far as it goes. I have always admired the work of John Barrymore, so reading anything on his life and times is always well worth my time.

Fowler obviously knew John Barrymore very well and did a very good job on this bio as far as it goes. I found this book much more centered around his career, almost skipping over major events such as births, marriages and divorces. if only he had found his true love, possibly the heavy drinking wouldn't have continued and robbed us of great acting performances yet to come.

Good Night, Sweet Prince book. Barrymore's life was neither comedy or tragedy; it was a grand opera. But as perfectly as words can do it, Gene Fowler has told the story. Barrymore was his friend, and his book is warm with the affection that flowed between them. The author respects Barrymore too much, however to apologize for him; he admires Barrymore's talents too much to pretend that those talents were not often thrown away.

Fowler begins Good Night, Sweet Prince with a short Overture to establish that the book was written by an intimate friend of Barrymore, someone who knew him well. The reader is reminded of Fowler’s relationship to his subject when the author supplements his narrative with references to recent conversations, especially with John’s brother Lionel. Although its emphasis is not on hard facts and documentary evidence, the book persuades its readers that they are receiving an intimate and well-rounded picture of Barrymore.
