He , Lionel and a black cook named Edward lived a Robinson Crusoe existence in which John said that Edward never made him or Lionel make their beds or wash the dishes and Edward was always able to cook up a hearty meal from nothing.

He was staying at the St. Francis Hotel when the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake struck. He had starred a production of The Dictator and was booked to sail to Australia to tour with it. Since he loathed this prospect, he decided to disappear, spending the next few days drinking at the home of a friend on Van Ness Avenue. "During his drinking jag, he had worked out a plan to exploit the earthquake for his own ends. He decided to present himself as an on-the-scene "reporter" of what had really happened in San Francisco. The one discrepancy between John Barrymore's "report" and those written by others involved in the disaster was that the actor made up virtually all he claimed to have seen. Twenty years later Barrymore finally confessed to his deception. But by then he was so famous that the world merely smiled indulgently at his admission."[1] His account was written as a "letter to my sister Ethel. He was sure the letter would be "worth at least a hundred dollars." In terms of publicity it earned Barrymore a thousand times that amount.[2] San Francisco Earthquake redirects here. ...

He specialized in trivial comedies until creating a sensation in John Galsworthy's Justice (1916). He followed this triumph up with Broadway successes in Peter Ibbetson (1917)(a role his father Maurice had wanted to play) and The Jest (1919) (co-starring his brother Lionel), reaching what seemed to be the zenith of his career as Richard III in 1920. Barrymore had a conspicuous failure in his wife Michael Strange's strange play Clair de Lune (1921), but followed it with the greatest success of his career with Hamlet in 1920 which he played on Broadway for 101 performances and then took to London in 1925.

When talking pictures arrived, Barrymore's theatrically trained voice added a new dimension to his work. He made his talkie debut with a dramatic reading from Henry VI in Warner Brothers' musical revue The Show of Shows, and reprised his Captain Ahab role in Moby Dick (1930). His other leads included The Man from Blankley's (1930), Svengali (1931), Grand Hotel (1932), Dinner at Eight (1933), Topaze (1933) and Twentieth Century (1934). He worked opposite many of the screen's foremost leading ladies, including Greta Garbo, Katharine Hepburn, Joan Crawford, and Carole Lombard. In 1933, Barrymore appeared as a Jewish attorney in the title role of Counsellor-at-Law. As critic Pauline Kael later wrote, he "seems an unlikely choice for the ghetto-born lawyer...but this is one of the few screen roles that reveal his measure as an actor.

In the late 1930s alcoholism and possibly Alzheimer's Disease encroached on his ability to remember his lines, and his diminished abilities were plainly apparent in an existing screen test that he made for an aborted film of Hamlet in 1934. From then on he insisted on reading his dialogue from cue cards. In the late 1930s he continued to give creditable performances in lesser pictures (he played Inspector Nielson in some of Paramount Pictures' Bulldog Drummond mysteries) and offered one last bravura dramatic turn in RKO's 1939 feature The Great Man Votes. After that, his last screen roles were broad and distasteful caricatures of himself, as in The Great Profile (with a demeaning choice of theme music: "Oh, Johnny, How You Can Love") and World Premiere. In the otherwise embarrassing Playmates with bandleader Kay Kyser, the failing Barrymore recited the Hamlet soliloquy with care and conviction, seeming to know that he would never do it again. In 1937, Barrymore visited the country of India, the land where his father had been born. In his private life during his last years he was married to his fourth and last wife Elaine Barrie which for better or worse turned out to be disastrous. His brother Lionel tried to help John find a small place near himself and to convince John to stay away from impetuous marriages which usually ended in divorce and put a strain on his once great income.

He was known for calling people by nicknames of his own creation. Dolores Costello was known in his writing alternately as "Small Cat," "Catkiwee," "Winkie", and "Egg." He called Lionel "Mike". And Ethel called John "Jake". He was fond of sailing, and owned his own yacht, "The Mariner", on which he could escape unhappy wives, mistresses, lawyers, and creditors. Both his first and second wives were delivered by the same doctor. Barrymore owned a pet monkey named Clementine, which he adored, and which appeared with her master in the films The Sea Beast (1926), Don Juan (1926), and When A Man Loves (1927).

Barrymore collapsed while appearing on a radio show and died some days later in his hospital room. His dying words were "Die? I should say not, dear fellow. No Barrymore would allow such a conventional thing to happen to him." Gene Fowler attributes different dying words to Barrymore in his biography Good Night, Sweet Prince. According to Fowler, John Barrymore roused as if to say something to his brother Lionel; Lionel asked John to repeat himself, and John simply replied, "You heard me, Mike".
