Where Have All The Good Actors Gone?

Lionel Barrymore is best remembered for his Henry Potter role in It's A Wonderful Life. He also played Ebenezer Scrooge on stage and would have done so on screen if his arthritis hadn't gotten to him. Here he plays the other side of the coin in another Capra movie, You Can't Take It With You (1938):

Barrymore played this role on crutches because of the pain of walking. Skip to the part where he explodes into a tirade at 4 min 42 s.
