Evelyn Laye as Princess Anna Elisa in "Paganini"

Evelyn Laye is such a brilliant example of a typically English kind of beauty that her task when making up for the stage becomes comparatively simple. All that she has to do is to make sure that the gold of her hair, the blue of her eyes, and the clear pink and white of her complexion are set off to their full effect. The white and gold of her Greek dress, when she played Helen of Troy, did this to perfection; so did the graceful fashions of Napoleon's time which she wore in Paganini.
