Diana Dors -The Actress,
This review is from: Yield To The Night [DVD]  (DVD)
Diana Dors was famous, world famous, as one of the 1950's Blonde Bombshells, she blazed through the decade in a series of tabloid headlines and magazine covers then in 1956 she made Yield to the Night. This one movie, more than any other, has confirmed her status as an Actress of merit. She plays Mary Hilton, a women waiting to hanged for her crime. It is bleak viewing, the routine of the condemned cell can't be anything else but Dors' fine performance will keep you enthralled. A series of flashbacks lifts the mood and reveals the series of events that led to her crime, for the love of her man. Special mention must also go to Yvonne Mitchell for her role as the sympathetic prison guard.
This is without doubt a British Classic and deserves a place in your film collection.
