Diana Dors still used as cover art

Morrissey briefly mentions the cover art featuring a still from this film (chosen by Warners) in Autobiography:

"For the sleeve of Singles Warner had used a bleakly soothing shot of Diana Dors that I had housed at Rough Trade many years ago in readiness for the next block of Smiths dynamite."

Wikipedia Information


Yield to the Night (U.S. title: Blonde Sinner) is a 1956 British crime drama film directed by J. Lee Thompson and starring Diana Dors. The film is based on the 1954 novel of the same name by Joan Henry. The storyline bears a superficial and coincidental resemblance to the Ruth Ellis case, which had occurred the previous year but subsequent to the release of Henry's novel. The film received much positive critical attention, particularly for the unexpectedly skilled acting of Dors, who had previously been cast solely as a British version of the typical "blonde bombshell".
