Diana Dors (aka: The Siren of Swindon). "Diana Dors was a new type of bombshell, one, lacking both the vulnerability of Marilyn Monroe or the sass of Jane Mansfield" (text from a previous pinner)
Blonde and curvey bombshell Diana Dors (1931 - 1984) was called ‘The English Marilyn Monroe’, to her disgust. In her own words: "I was the first home-grown sex symbol, rather like Britain's naughty seaside postcards. When Marilyn Monroe's first film was shown here [The Asphalt Jungle (1950)], a columnist actually wrote, 'How much like our Diana Dors she is'."
