John Barrymore Birthday Bash Raises Funds for FLHS Drama Department

Many turn out to support FLHS Drama Department on John Barrymore's 131st birthday.

Depsite the snowbanks, the cold temperature and the on-coming traffic--the Fort Lee Film Commission celebrated John Barrymore's 131st birthday by laying a wreath at Central Road (commemoratively named John Barrymore Way) and Main Street as dusk fell Friday evening.

A young Shakespearian actor donned the role of John Barrymore for the evening and captured his spirit magnanimously and magnificiently as he regaled the audience gathered around the bar at In Napoli Restaurant with stories of Fort Lee from the last turn of the century.

All money raised at the fundraiser goes to benefit the Drama Department of Fort Lee High School.
