Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

A dignified if somewhat corpulent British stage veteran, Evelyn Beresford joined the large British contingency in Hollywood during World War II. Usually cast as rather grand dowagers, Beresford was a virtual dead ringer for the aged Queen Victoria, whom she portrayed twice, in Buffalo Bill (1944) and Annie Get Your Gun (1950).
