Actress
    (January 22, 1923-July 3, 2015)
    Born in Devonshire, Bermuda
    Birth name was Diana Love Dill
    Portrayed Martha Evans in 'Days of Our Lives' (1977-79,1982)
    Appeared in 'The Indian Fighter' (1955), 'The West Point Story' (1956), 'Roots: The Next Generation' (1979), 'Jaws of Satan' (1981), 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles' (1987) and 'It Runs in the Family' (2003)
    First wife of Kirk Douglas (1943-51)
    Mother of Michael Douglas
    She was a self-admitted rebellious child: 'I broke all the rules. If a sign said, 'Walk, don't run,' I definitely ran.'
    She got pregnant during an affair with Errol Flynn and had an illegal abortion.
    She was better remembered as Kirk's ex and Michael's mother than for her acting.
    While Kirk was in the Navy, he saw her picture on the cover of 'Life' (May 3, 1943 issue) and told his shipmates he would marry her.
    She and Kirk remained on amicable terms after their divorce: 'I know Michael has said since becoming an adult that he was always very grateful that we never did badmouth each other.'
    Because she wanted her kids to have 'a settled, normal upbringing' outside of Hollywood, after the divorce she moved with the children to Connecticut and commuted to New York City for TV appearances.
    She said her personal philosophy was 'Be courageous, be compassionate, and, for God's sake, have fun!'
