About the Book: Scandal, adultery, secret marriages, celebrity, divorce, custody battles, suicide attempts, and alcoholism ― the trials and tribulations of the Costellos were as riveting as any Hollywood feature film. Written with unprecedented access to the family’s personal documents and artifacts ― and interviews with several family members, including Dolores Barrymore Bedell (the daughter of John Barrymore and Dolores Costello) and Helene’s daughter Deirdre ― this riveting study explores the dramatic history of the Costellos and their extraordinary significance to the stage and screen. The original members of this pioneering family may be gone, but the name and legacy of the Costellos will live on through their accomplishments, films, and descendants―most notably, actress Drew Barrymore.
