Dolores retires to her Fallbrook ranch to raise Tony far from any parental threats to her guardianship. She consolidates her control over her grandson by getting power of attorney, but takes no chances of any reattachments between mother and son by barring Dede from the ranch. At age fifteen, Tony leaves the ranch to go live with his mother and stepfather in Los Angeles. John Blyth (now John Drew) Barrymore burns his bridges in Hollywood and heads off to Italy to make a fresh start in pictures. He returns after a few years, but despite a number of well-received television appearances, he self-destructs. Dolores gives up drinking but is diagnosed with emphysema after a lifetime of smoking. She dies in Fallbrook at the age of seventy-five.

Keywords:   Dolores retires, Tony leaves Dolores, John Drew Barrymore, John’s self-destruction
