look-alike makeups: Diana Dors

Diana Dors (1931–1984) was a British actress who was, somewhat optimistically, claimed to be the British equivalent of the blonde bombshells of Hollywood – though with considerably greater justification than the similiar hailing of Cliff Richard as the British Elvis. Though it was rarely fully utilised, she had significant acting ability, as seen in her 1956 movie Yield to the Night where she played a murderess.

The Blonde Bombshell: was a TV biopic of Diana Dors where Keeley Hawes played the younger Diana and then Amanda Redman took over as Diana got older. If anyone has details of the makeup credits, please themakeupgallery.
