Diana Davidson is the actress who played the swimmer killed at the start of the first Dirty Harry movie. Here's a short description and some stills from the scene:

In the IMDB cast list, she's listed as an Aussie actress who was born in 1929:

which meant that she would have been more than 40 years old when the scene was shot.

Here's a photo of the actress from 1956:

and from 1966:

There's another Diana Davidson listed in IMDB:

and her only film listed is Scared to Death (1980):

I haven't seen the movie, but I think she's the dark-haired woman in the still in this article about the movie:

The singer Rick Springfield is mentioned in the article, and in one Twitter entry he shares this old picture of himself with Diana and her brother Doug:

and is also shown in this picture from Pinterest:

This is probably the brother Doug:

but his sister isn't mentioned in the bio.

Finally, her filmography in BFI shows even more films, including the ones just mentioned:

If anyone can provide more information about this, let me know. I'd like to make corrections in the Dirty Harry entry in IMDB.
