Barbara Everest as Queen Anne in "Viceroy Sarah"

This, by general consent, was one of the most remarkable feats of make-up seen on the London stage in recent years. As queen Anne she had to be self-satisfied, petulant and abysmally stupid. Accordingly, she raised her eyebrows, and reduced her own generous mouth to a mean little rosebud. And, by some actresses's magic and the help of voluminous clothes, she contrived, without being fat, to give an overwhelming impression of fatness.
