He started his stage career in the early 1900s. After many years spent in Paris, in 1907 he came back to Broadway, where he established his reputation as dramatic actor. He proved his talent in many plays as Peter Ibbetson (1917), The Copperhead (1918) and The Jest (1919).
In 1924 he left Broadway for Hollywood. In 1931 he won an Oscar for his role of an alcoholic lawyer in A Free Soul (1931), after having been nominated in 1930 for best director for Madame X. Although he could play many types of characters, such as the evil Rasputin in the 1932 Rasputin and the Empress (in which he co-starred with John and Ethel Barrymore), he was, during the 1930s and 1940s, stereotyped as grouchy, but usually sweet, elderly men in such films as The Mysterious Island (1929), Grand Hotel (1932, with John), Dinner at Eight (1933, the film also featured John, but they had no scenes together), Captains Courageous (1937), You Can't Take It with You (1938), Duel in the Sun (1946), and Key Largo (1948). Perhaps his best known role was as Mr. Potter, the miserly banker in It's a Wonderful Life (1946). The role was obviously based on Ebenezer Scrooge, whom Barrymore had been playing on radio annually since 1934.
