Of all the lie-ridden Made for TV biopics I've seen, I think this one sticks to the truth quite nicely. It gave me a nice insight to the life and times of Miss Dors, a public figure I honestly knew nothing about. All of I really knew her as was the ex-Mrs. Richard Dawson (quite a twist, don't you think?) In fact, the part I really liked was the positive portrayal of him. Before I watched, I honestly expected the writers to trash him. It always seems like the main subject of the movie gets away scotfree no matter what they did, and the husbands or wives get crapped on. Not so in this pic, and as a big fan of Mr. Dawson's, that was nice to see.
To comment on an earlier comment- the reasons the kids were never seen is because Diana didn't spend a whole lot of time with them. She was always working or playing around with other men. Her own sons have said that.
