Violet Vanbrugh in “Henry VIII”
The card (#85P) was published by J. Beagles and Company with a photograph by Ellis and Walery. Neither the play nor the part is identified, but this is Miss Vanbrugh’s costume for the role of Queen Katherine.
She won critical acclaim in the role of Queen Katherine in Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree’s production of Henry VIII in 1910; the next year she played the part in a silent film. Her success in the role was such that in 1915 she was chosen to play Katherine in the “all-star revival” of Henry VIII at His Majesty’s Theatre, London.
