VHS:WTF – Barrymore’s Best Bites

Barrymore Month draws to a close with a 30-min video essay, examining the big man through his own selection of hand-picked favourite moments. One particular song is very much not awright.

This video first appeared on my Patreon, where subscribers could watch it a month before it landed here. If you’d like to support me for as little as $1 a month, then click here to help provide the world with regular deep dives about weird-bad pop culture, early access to my podcast, and all kinds of other stuff.

There’s over 500,000 words of content, including exclusives that’ll never appear here on the free blog, such as 1970’s British variety-set horror novella, Jangle, and my latest novel, Men of the Loch. Please give my existing books a look too, or if you’re so inclined, sling me a Ko-fi or some PayPal cash.

One Response to “VHS:WTF – Barrymore’s Best Bites”

  1. Ah no! What seemed charming, entertaining and amusing a quarter of a century ago is now unwatchable and embarrassingly dated. The interview with Georgina Ellis is especially badly judged; she was clearly a troubled, vulnerable woman hapless by tragic circumstances and should not have been featured as a foil for Barrymore’s brand of clowning which was totally inappropriate; he was tainted by scandal not long afterwards, and his comic persona and style here appears both repetitive and somewhat spiteful to guests and members of the public alike. It would be better not to see it any further.
