TriviaBorn at 3:42pm-PDT. Father of actress Drew Barrymore. When they were both 13 years old, John and his cousin, Dirk Drew Davenport, successfully enlisted in the US Navy (it was during WW2), presenting themselves as 17 year olds. Being tall and well-built (especially for thirteen), it was several weeks before the Navy (and their family) uncovered their patriotic charade. Father of John Blyth Barrymore. Nephew of Lionel Barrymore and Ethel Barrymore - his father's siblings. He inherited a chest full of family memorabilia and collectibles when his mother, actress Dolores Costello, died in 1979. They included family photos, journals, movie stills, and letters. He had a friend, Carol Stein Hoffman, turn the archives into a coffee table book entitled "The Barrymores: Hollywood's First Family," which was published in 2001. Had another daughter, Blythe, from his marriage to Gabriella Palazzoli. Godfather of his daughter Drew Barrymore is Steven Spielberg.
