When Doves Cry..

Postby davetom » Wed Oct 21, 2015 9:44 pm

Hello everyone!

I came across a Dorothy Stratten tag on the internet today that I have never connected before.

Someone said that Prince's "When Doves Cry" he used Dorothys face for the girl in the poster...

What do you all think?

It could be, though I can find nothing on the internet to support it. What would be the source photo?

William,

What happens at times, I google Dorothy's name, and pics pop up from obscure sites, and the next day I cant find them again.

This is one of those occasions.

If you look at the first pic and the 2nd is a mirror image, that is Dorothy's face.

There was always something about When Doves Cry poster pic that haunted me. But then again, I could be imposing my idea that its Dorothy.

I too have tried to find out of Prince did use her pic or say anything about it, but I come up empty handed.

It does look like her. I was just curious to read if there was more to the picture, like a discussion that might shed some light.
