Dear fellow Flynn fans,

here is a peek-a-boomshell of our Hollywood hero mingling with the Hurrycane in mink, Diana Dors, at a garden party in England of 1952. The very self concious and sophisticated DD, a perfect mix between Marilyn and Mansfield, knighted herself “the first British sex symbol since Lady Godiva”. Concerning his look, Errol agreed totally.

In the 1960’s Miss Dors began putting on weight until she became a grotesque cartoon of her former self. To her credit, Diana Dors became a first-rate character actress and did excellent dramatic work in films like ‘Nothing But The Night’ (1973) with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. She was once married to British comic actor Richard Dawson of Hogan’s Heroes (1965-1971)… Read more »
