DIANA DORS BIOGRAPHY & FILMOGRAPHY:

Diana Dors was born on October 23rd, 1931 in Swindon, Wiltshire in England with the birth name Diana Mary Fluck as an only child to Mary and Peter Fluck.  As a young girl she took dancing lessons and began to take an interest in films when she attended the movies at local theaters with her mother as a child.  

She received her early years education in the top private schools and already had her aspirations set on pursuing a career as an actress.  After she placed in a local beauty contest she began acting as a teenager appearing in a number of stage productions.  She then enrolled in acting classes and by age fifteen she was appearing in films mostly as a young sexy background actress.
 
Some of her early film roles were on such features as, "Code of Scotland Yard" (1947) followed by, "Dancing With Crime" (1947) and "Oliver Twist" (1948).  She was being promoted as the British, Marilyn Monroe and was earning such nicknames as, The Siren of Swindon, Hurricane in Mink and Dorsy.

After being diagnosed with cancer she had a hard time dealing with her health ailment.  She donated much of her final years working with various religious groups and charities. 
 
Dors married a number of times throughout her lifetime.  Her first husband was Dennis Hamilton whom she wed in 1951 and even though they had begun divorce proceedings in 1958, before they finalized he passed away in 1959.  Her second husband was Richard Dawson, whom she married in 1959 and they had two children together before ending this marriage in 1966.  Dors third husband was Alan Lake in 1968 and they had one son, Alan Lake Jr. and they remained married until Diana Dors passed away on May 4th, 1984 in Windsor, Berkshire, England after suffering from stomach cancer.  Her third husband Alan committed suicide five months after losing his wife.
