Diana Dors displayed to the fullest.

Today we're finally showing you the racy Diana Dors photo book we mentioned a while back, titled Diana Dors in 3-D, published in 1950. You may remember that Dors, who had a wild sex life anyway, was convinced by her boyfriend Dennis Hamilton to cash in on her fame with a set of racy images. They collaborated with photographer Horace Roye, who with a partner had developed a stereoscopic process called Roye-Vala. Which is why the book courteously includes 3D glasses, so buyers could get a realistic topographical sensation while perving over Dors. The shots aren't revealing by today's standards of course, but since she was a major star the book was a shocking—if enterprising—move. Hamilton's involvement gives it a whiff of Svengali-like exploitation, but that's just makes it pulp. There are about ten Dors images below, and a few ad pages for other Roye-Vala photo books. Enjoy.

1938—Alicante Is Bombed
During the Spanish Civil War, a squadron of Italian bombers sent by fascist dictator Benito Mussolini to support the insurgent Spanish Nationalists, bombs the town of Alicante, killing more than three-hundred people. Although less remembered internationally than the infamous Nazi bombing of Guernica the previous year, the death toll in Alicante is similar, if not higher.
1977—Star Wars Opens
George Lucas's sci-fi epic Star Wars premiers in the Unites States to rave reviews and packed movie houses. Produced on a budget of $11 million, the film goes on to earn $460 million in the U.S. and $337 million overseas, while spawning a franchise that would eventually earn billions and make Lucas a Hollywood icon.

1930—Amy Johnson Flies from England to Australia
English aviatrix Amy Johnson lands in Darwin, Northern Territory, becoming the first woman to fly from England to Australia. She had departed from Croydon on May 5 and flown 11,000 miles to complete the feat. Her storied career ends in January 1941 when, while flying a secret mission for Britain, she either bails out into the Thames estuary and drowns, or is mistakenly shot down by British fighter planes. The facts of her death remain clouded today.
