Classic Icons: Diana Dors

[tweetmeme source="erotixx" only_single=false] Diana Dors (23 October 1931 – 4 May 1984) was an English actress and sex symbol. She was born Diana Mary Fluck in Swindon, England.

They asked me to change my name. I suppose they were afraid that if my real name Diana Fluck was in lights and one of the lights blew…

Before she died, Dors apparently hid away what she claimed to be over £2million in banks across Europe. Eighteen months before her death, she gave her son Mark Dawson a sheet of paper, which she told him was a code that would reveal the whereabouts of the money.

Her widower, Alan Lake, supposedly had the key that would crack the code. But Lake committed suicide only five months after Dors died, leaving Dawson an apparently unsolvable code. Dawson, however, was determined to discover his late mother’s fortune. He sought out computer forensic specialists Inforenz, who recognised the encryption as the Vigenère cipher. Inforenz then used their own cryptography software to suggest a ten-letter decryption key, DMARYFLUCK (short for Diana Mary Fluck, Dors’s real name).

Although the company was then able to decode the entire message and link it to a bank statement found in some of Lake’s papers, the location of the money is still unknown.

Not a dumb blonde at all…

  1. I have to admit that I’ve never heard of her before this. What a shame. She was a real knockout! And the thing with the code is petty cool too! 😀

    • yeah, I loved the codebreaking part as well, quite unusual way of giving away your money, I hope none of my family will do that, just put it directly into my bank account, ok… 🙂

  2. You’ve outdone yourself, old friend! You selected some great shots here, and I learned some new things from your bio on her. She’s always been one of my favorites, and you really did her proud.

    And if I may comment on the whole series – this ranks among your very finest posts of all-time – I really wish it wouldn’t end!!

    • ooooooooh, blushing here now, thanks, I am so happy that you liked it and it was so fun going through all these lovely sites out there with these gorgeous pictures and information, I know so much silly information about some of these legends that I will probably never use but I will use it if I can… come on… ask me a question 🙂

    • and oh yeah, thanks for letting me know about her, she is one of my favourites now, saw one of her movies this weekend and loved it… she’s awesome…
