Twentieth Century

John Barrymore as stage director Oscar Jaffe in a screencap from Twentieth Century (1934).  He was “The Great Profile” and one of the biggest stars of the silent era, but this is his only worthy starring role in a talking picture.  His only other good talkies are Grand Hotel and Midnight, neither of which he receives top billing.
