itv DVD have pulled out all the stops for this lavish collection for Diana Dors. The packaging is excellent, the box folds out revealing pictures of our star (the pictures shown are from publicity shots taken for As Long as They're Happy, which is included in this set).
We have 6 movies here covering Dors career in British Film, some are early co-star roles and it's great to see the pre-peroxide starlet making her mark. Lady Godiva Rides Again, which also features an early role for Joan Collins and and uncredited cameo from the doomed Ruth Ellis is a great comedy/drama about beauty contests, Diamond City with Honor Blackman in the lead female role, who also stars with Dors in A Boy, A Girl and a Bike, two very differnt dramas, one set in the diamond fields of South Africa the other a cycle club in a North Country mill town. Dors is in full Blonde Bombshell mode singing Hokey Pokey Polka in the histerical As Long as They're Happy.
We then have Carol Reeds classic tale A Kid For Two Farthings about a young boy who belives he has found a unicorn, Dors is wonderful in this movie which boasts an impressive all star ensemble including Celia Johnson.
Of course Yield to the Night is Diana Dors' best film, directed by Lee J Thompson, Dors gives the performance of a lifetime playing Mary Hilton, a woman waiting to be hanged for the murder of the other woman.
All the discs have extras too, including picture galleries, star profiles and director profiles, all the discs have full animated menu systems. The transfers to dvd are also excelent.
As if this wasn't enough we also have the bonus 7th disc, the 4 hour bio-pic of Dors amazing life, The Blonde Bombshell which stars Keeley Hawes as the young star and Amanda Redman playing the older Dors, excellent!
