Tim Oliveira has new print release this week and you my fine readers get to see it first. The print is titled Party Girl and it is a tribute to 50's English actress Diana Dors.
Who exactly is Diana Dors ? She first came to public notice as a blonde bombshell in the style of Monroe, as promoted by her first husband Dennis Hamilton, mostly via sex film-comedies and risqué modelling. When it turned out that Hamilton had been defrauding her for his own benefit, she had little choice but to play up to her established image, and she made tabloid headlines with the adult parties reportedly held at her house. Later she showed a genuine talent for TV and cabaret, and gained new popularity as a regular chat-show guest. Dors claimed to have left a large fortune to her son in her will, via a secret code in the possession of her third husband Alan Lake. But after Lake’s suicide, this code was never found, and the whereabouts of the fortune remains a mystery.
