Did you see Diana Dors in Plymouth?
I AM putting together a professional, non-commercial, scrapbook of pictures and articles from all my many film mags and books about Diana Dors. Plus a memories and tributes section.
I wondered if anybody has any memories of Diana Dors visiting Plymouth and/or Devonport, and in particular during the 1950s when she was made mascot of the ship HMS Diana?
I read that she did a photo-shoot on the ship at Plymouth/Devonport in the 1950s or early 1960s. She apparently sat on a sailor's knee for a photograph. I wondered if any of your readers met her or saw her and would like to share any memories?
This book will be donated to library archives around the country, where Diana lived and worked, including her birthplace, Swindon.

I prefer Diana Dors' serious acting roles, in particular as the condemned woman in Yield to the Night (1956), a film that helped to abolish the death penalty in the UK during the 1960s. Diana Dors was one of the most loved and diverse entertainers Britain produced during the 20th century and she certainly earned that status. She was the precursor of the modern-day celebrity in every way.
She could put her mind to serious and comedic studies on TV, in film and on stage. In 1960 Diana even started a singing career, which eventually produced her Swingin' Dors album.I look forward to any memories from Herald readers – thank you.
