All eyes on John Barrymore. It's all about him and his mad character controlling and manipulating the world around him to create a star out of his protègè. The rest of the cast doesn't really matter even if it does feature Boris Karloff in a small part as the abusive father of the kid Barrymore's character takes in. Fairly good story and a relentless character, but it never takes off or become anything more then a showcase for Barrymore's stage acting ability.
