Beautiful Evelyn Ankers was called the “Queen of the Screamers” due to her famous, bloodcurdling screams in “B” suspense thrillers of the 1940s. When not screaming, the lovely star was a very talented actress – one who, sadly, never quite found a breakout role or film.
Many times that is the main thing that separates an Evelyn Ankers from a Victoria Lake.
Evelyn was born in Chile to English parents in 1918. She was a staple for Universal’s horror films in the 1940s.
Evelyn’s films include:
- Hold that Ghost
- The Ghost of Frankenstein
- The Wolf Man
- Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror
- Son of Dracula
- The Mad Ghoul
- The Frozen Ghost
- Black Beauty
- The Pearl of Death (Sherlock Holmes)
