When Pathe Newsreels captured current celebrities in the 1930s and 40s
they were often filmed (silent) with narrations and incidental music added
later. On other occasions they used sound live in interview or recorded
them in performance.
Evelyn appeared in a few films for Pathe some of which can be viewed in
their 'preview' low resolution format for no cost at the Pathe

Here is the full list of the Evelyn Pathe films with an appearance for British
Gaumont with links to view (or purchase should you have the funds!)
