Diana Barrymore was the daughter of actor John Barrymore, and poet "Michael Strange", which was the pen name of Blanche Oelrichs. Diana was born into a family of wealth, fame, and beauty, but she was never very close to the Barrymore side of her family. Sadly, Diana was never able to replicate her family's success. She received mainly negative reviews for her acting, and she began to get depressed. She became an alcoholic, and she began marrying and then divorcing on a regular basis. She had no luck when it came to the opposite sex, for example, she fell in love with playwright Tennessee Williams, but he was a homosexual.
