Trivia:

Sir John Davis, Managing Director of the Rank Organisation, proposed to Dinah on the condition that she give up acting. She accepted and retired just as stardom hit with the film Genevieve (1953). The strain of her lost career put too much of a strain on their marriage and they divorced 11 years later. See more »
