Diana Dors ~ Britain's Wild Sexpot


Diana Dors

Diana Dors was a British bombshell known for her wild sexual escapades.

She was born Diana Mary Fluck on October 23, 1931 in Swindon, England. At the time her mother was married to Albert Fluck and was having an affair with a man named Gerald Lack. Diana was never really sure which man was her father. At the age of fourteen she was accepted at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. She made her film debut in the 1947 crime drama The Shop at Sly Corner. Diana became pregnant in 1950 and had an abortion because she worried a baby would hurt her career. She married actor Dennis Hamilton in July of 1951. Their marriage was very rocky and she would have two more abortions. Dennis also encouraged her to sleep with producers to further her career. Diana landed supporting roles in the British films Lady Godiva Rides Again and It's A Grand Life. With her voluptuous figure and platinum blonde hair she became a popular sexy symbol. She was often called "The British Marilyn Monroe". In 1956 she was offered a contract with RKO and moved to Hollywood. At a press event Dennis got into a fight with reporter and Diana was pushed into a pool. The story made headlines and the bad publicity hurt her reputation. Diana and Dennis became known for throwing wild parties at their home that often turned into drug-filled orgys. During the filming of The Unholy Wife she had an affair with Rod Steiger.
