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."

David Cairns

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".
