Deliver Us From Evelyn
She was never among the top-rankers
Playing opposite monsters and cankers
So poor Evelyn fled
From each primeval dread
Saying "You're all truly horrible, Ankers."
British actress and "scream queen" Evelyn Ankers (17 August 1918 – 29 August 1985). Ankers starred in such horror and monster thrillers as The Wolf Man (top; 1941), The Ghost of Frankenstein (above; 1942), Son of Dracula (1943), The Mad Ghoul (1943), Weird Woman (1944), and The Invisible Man's Revenge (1944). In the UK, where David Cairns watches films, "Evelyn" is pronounced with a hard "E".
