Hi there! Welcome to my blogsite, dedicated to the lovely and talented Madge Evans. She’s one of my very favorite actresses, but there aren’t many websites that are all about her, so I figured I’d start one of my own. I’ve still got some building to do, but right now you can view her biography, filmography, and a collection of images. I’ll be filling in the filmography with blog posts about certain films, and I’ll link them into the filmography page.
So take a look around!
