LOGLINE: Lionel Barrymore was a pioneer in his fight against disease and disability. He refused to retire from the screen, and he continued to work after being diagnosed with arthritis, leaving him confined to a wheelchair. His seldom shared story changed the way movie audiences viewed folks with a handicap; and his efforts influenced Helen Keller and Franklin D. Roosevelt in their own struggles. Their combined efforts made the March of Dimes program the most successful charity organization in United States history.
