Diana Douglas


Born - 22 January 1923, Devonshire, Bermuda
Died - 4 July 2015

Chirpy, prettily pixilated American actress with fair curly hair, probably best remembered as the first wife of Kirk Douglas, and mother of his two sons, Michael and Joel. Born Diana Dill, success as a Powers model got her into films in Keeper of the Flame (1942). After the war, her acting career gathered pace for a while: The Late George Apley (1947), The Sign of the Ram (1948), House of Strangers (1949), The Whistle at Eaton Falls (1951), Monsoon (1952) and The Indian Fighter (1955), the latter opposite her now ex-husband. Much TV work followed. Later she was seen in Loving (1970), Another Man, Another Chance (1977), Jaws of Satan (1981), The Star Chamber (1983), Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987), Cold Heaven (1991) and It Runs in the Family (2003), her last.
