Demure American leading lady Madge Evans was a professional from childhood. As an infant, she was featured in print ads as the "Fairy Soap girl." From 1915 through 1918, she was resident child actress of the World Film Company. During the early 1920s she kept busy as a ingenue, leaving films in 1924 to devote her time to the stage. Though her "official" return to films as an adult performer was 1931, Evans had earlier appeared as a saucy teenager in a 1929 Vitaphone short starring Walter Winchell. One of the best of MGM's second-echelon stars, Evans appeared in such "A"-pictures as Dinner at Eight (1933) and David Copperfield (1935), as well as a larger number of "B"s along the lines of Death on the Diamond (1934). Retiring from films in 1938 to marry playwright Sidney Kingsley, Evans continued to appear onstage until 1943. Madge Evans made her last appearances before the cameras on television, showing up as a panelist on one of the earlier incarnations of that hardy perennial Masquerade Party.
