Dodd Darin (birth name – Dodd Mitchell Darin) is an American author and the son of Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin.

His middle name was given in honor of Sandra Dee’s press agent, Betty Mitchell.


He was born on December 16, 1961, in Los Angeles, California, USA.

Darin is the son of Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee.

During the late 1950s and early ’60s, Bobby and Dee were America’s sweethearts.

They met while filming Come September.

When they tied the knot, their marriage seemed like the perfect dream of any American couple.

But Dee and Bobby divorced in 1967 after she suffered from an addiction to alcohol and pills. However, the two stayed on good terms. Dee once said:

”We even lived together after the divorce.”

Bobby Darin was an American singer who performed country, swing, folk, rock and roll, pop, and jazz music.

In 1962, Bobby won a Golden Globe Award for his film, ”Come September.”

Unfortunately, he died (after a six‐hour open-heart surgery) four days after his son’s 12th birthday in 1973. He was 37 years old.

During an interview, Dodd said:

“My mom never recovered from my dad’s passing.”

Darin went on to say:

“They were divorced and hadn’t been together for years but a lot of her died the day he died.”

Sandra Dee was an American actress who earned a Golden Globe Award in 1958 for her performance in Robert Wise’s Until They Sail in 1958.

In 1959, she appeared in A Summer Place as Troy Donahue’s teen girlfriend.

Sandra’s film Imitation of Life became a box office success, grossing more than $50 million.

Her final film performance was in the drama Lost.

In February 2005, Dee died from complications from kidney disease in Thousand Oaks, California.

During an interview with Daily Telegraph, Darin said about his parents:

”When I was very young, both my parents made an effort to have a normal existence for me as much as possible.”

Dodd later added:

”For those who don’t know, my mum was also high profile at the time and they both realized that I was going to have my own life to lead eventually and they tried to keep it as normal as possible.”

In 1990, he accepted the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame award for his father.


In 1994, Darin released a book named – ”Dream Lovers: The Magnificent Shattered Lives of Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee.”

The book chronicles his parents’ divorce (when Darin was six), the fact that his mother had been sexually abused as a child by her stepfather, his mother’s struggle with depression and anorexia using his rare photographs, letters, interviews, and his own memories.

Darin started to write the book in 1988 as a method to connect with his father and learn all about him.

In 2016, the book was translated into a musical that had its premiere in Sydney, reported ABC.

As a young girl I was very much a fan of both Bobby Darin and Sandra Dee! Like Elvis Presley Bobby Darin was very unique. He had his own style no one could duplicate. All of us girl read all about them both and we loved Sandra Dee. We were very young and wanted to be just like her. Thank you for sharing with us who are still fans.
