When John Barrymore was cast, it was well known that his alcoholism would necessitate some accommodation. This accounted for the presence in the cast of his young wife, Elaine Barrie. When he could not remember some of his lines, they were written out on blackboards just off camera, and both his irascibility and sense of humor were well in evidence. At one point one of the female assistants on the set went into the ladies room, only to be confronted with the sight of Barrymore, his back turned, relieving himself. "You can't be here," she protested, "it's just for ladies." He turned around and retorted, "So's this!" This incident was turned into a gag by Peter O'Toole in the movie My Favorite Year, whose retort in the same situation was, "So is this, madam, but first I must run a little water through it."
