Madge Evans

Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Madge Evans (1909-1981) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles.

Born Margherita Evans in New York City, she’d be an artists' model as an infant, and find fame and fortune as soon as the next decade as Baby Madge, film star. She grew up to become that rare child star who found Hollywood success in adulthood. Evans debuted on film in 1914, and was a busy Hollywood child star through to the early 1920s. Some titles that ring a bell from this era include The Seven Sisters (1915), Alias Jimmy Valentine (1915), Seventeen (1916), and Heidi (1920). Classmates (1924) was treated as comeback vehicle, but Evans left the movies for a few years on Broadway, where she appeared in a handful of plays including W. Somerset Maugham's Our Betters (1928) and Philip Goes Forth (1931), the latter production leading to her signing a long-term contract with MGM. The former child star was 22 when she reintroduced herself to film audiences in Son of India (1931), her first film under that MGM deal, which was followed by titles like The Greeks Had a Word for Them (1932), Hallelujah I'm a Bum (1933), The Mayor of Hell (1933), Dinner at Eight (1933), David Copperfield (1935), Transatlantic Tunnel (1935), and Pennies from Heaven (1936), just a few of the best known 40 feature-film titles that Madge Evans appeared in during this portion of her career. She retired from the movies and moved to New Jersey after marrying Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Sidney Kingsley, who wrote the final Broadway play Evans would appear in, The Patriots (1943). Based on the East Coast, Evans went on to make several radio and television appearances throughout the 1950s before retiring.
