    Hi Kathleen – true to Sherlooking!
    Yes – Errol was dating her, but she married Kirk Douglas in November 1943 and the marriage was divorced in 1951. She is the mother of Michael Douglas and Joel Douglas. She has an extensive movie carrier herself. She is 87 and living in Bermuda – her home country!
    Take care,

    Great! Has she ever been interviewed regarding Errol? I mean she is still living and she “knew” him!

    I don't think it was much of a relationship.

    Sorry, I guess I should clarify. I've read about her but not much, she's not very well known.
    Didn't seem to me it was anything special (the relationship). Just a passing thing.
    Just my 2 cents. :)

    Maybe more of you wish to know more about Diana Dill! Most definitely she is no “Dill pickle”, as a matter of facts she is quite a woman!
    Just have a little look and do some calculating while you are at it. Looks to me she is another Olivia de Havilland, in particular when it come to spryness in age!
    Diana Dill (born January 22, 1923) who has also appeared professionally under the names Diana Douglas and Diana Douglas Darrid.
    Diana Love Dill was born in Bermuda, the daughter of Ruth and Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas Melville Dill (also the name of her great-grandfather, a mariner), who was a former Attorney General of Bermuda, and former Commanding Officer of the Bermuda Militia Artillery. Hers is a prominent Bermuda family, present on the island since the very early 1600s.
    She was once married to Kirk Douglas, with whom she had studied acting before World War II. The two were married on November 2, 1943. They had two sons, Michael, and Joel before divorcing in 1951.
    Dill married actor Bill Darrid, and the two lived with Diana's sons on the East Coast until Bill’s death in 1992.
    At the age of 79 in 2002, Dill married Donald Webster, in Bermuda.
    Dill continued to appear in films with Kirk Douglas, most recently in 2003, when he played her husband in “It Runs in the Family”, in which son Michael Douglas and his son Cameron acted. Joel Douglas was an associate producer of the film.
    Her carrier was in TV movies and TV series, which is so extensive I could not list here. Please go to Google!
    That's all for now folks!

    Very clever, Robert. You made me smile. She seems to be one that got away!
