From the vaults - has anyone else seen the early sound film interview with
an extremely drunk John Barrymore where he calls the microphone "the
instrument of the devil?" The mic is visible in the frame, he is
addressing it directly, attacking it and (as I remember, but this may be
exaggeration) spitting on it contemptuously. I'm not sure where I saw it,
many years ago, but it's like a vivid piece of "Hollywood Babylon" on
