Diana Dors is a legen. Her fame has survived the adored Fifties' celebrity to today's cult figure. She is arguably the biggest star the UK has produced, not only for her acclaimed body of work but for her generosity, incredible bravery, lack of airs and graces, and her compassion, wit and intelligence.
From the age of eight, Diana's huge, passionate dream was to become a wealthy, famous film star. Connecting Dors tells the fascinating story of how an ordinary-looking child, from an ordinary family, made that seemingly impossible dream come true.
It explores the consequences of that celebrity/stardom, not only on herself but on her son, Jason, and examines the pitfalls and rewards of being the child of a famous celebrity.
Connecting Dors is both informative and entertaining, recounting wild tales involving Diana's friends – Hollywood stars, rogues and rascals – tales which are poignant, hilarious, shocking and disturbing, not just from her own life but also from Jason's. It is a story that has never been told.
