Diana Dors 1931 – 1984

In 1931, British on September 13, 2017 at 11:35 am

Diana Dors (1931 – 1984) the Swindon girl who made it big before the days of botox and boob jobs. There was a day in TV and film when you either had it or you didn’t. And one Swindon girl most definitely had it. Diana Dors may never have lived up to her billing as “Britain’s answer to Marilyn Monroe”, but the Swindon-born actress was certainly the darling of the British post-War movie industry, and when she died sadly on 4 May 1984, aged only 52, she had long since become one of the country’s best-known and best-loved actresses.

Sheree North was one of the last in a long line of Fox blondes stretching from Sonja Henie, Alice Faye, Betty Grable, June Haver to Jayne Mansfield and Marilyn Monroe. In fact, North was originally hired by 20th Century-Fox with the intention of making her the next Monroe, whose height and measurements she almost matched exactly. “Even today,” she told an interviewer in 1983, “there’s still the same reaction when producers hear my name. They remember me as the blonde who was to have taken over from Marilyn Monroe.” The Guardian.
