Pamela Stanley as Queen Victoria in "Victoria Regina"

Here is the most startling of the series of clever make-ups by which Pamela Stanley impressed the theatre-going public and made her name. It represents Queen Victoria at the age of about sixty. Though her mind is still vigorous, her body has grown thick and heavy and her face is that of an old woman. To render all this was a striking feat for a young, slim actress who had played the Queen as a girl of eighteen only  a few scenes earlier. to obtain the pendulous effect in the cheeks, Miss Stanley used pads of dental wax.
