"Britain's answer to Marilyn Monroe". This tag was to hang around Diana Dors' neck during the 1950s. As Diana would often point out she had been working professionally a lot longer than Monroe. Her first appearance was in 1946 in The Shop at Sly Corner, while still a student at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Diana, like Marilyn, was blonde, curvy and sexy, but that's where the comparison ended. Her range as an actress encompassed everything from comedy to Greek tragedy. She was a real person - a quality that endeared her to the public, but above all, she was a survivor. Diana was also a talented writer compiling two autobiographies of herself, as well as her three A - Z books. Diana had a prolific career covering every facet of the entertainment industry - theatre, cabaret, film and TV. Passport to Fame is a comprehensive study of Diana's work across her 40 years of filmmaking. The book is also an invaluable source of reference to the film-buff interested in the changing face of the film industry.
