Love it! LOLOLOL!
FYI .. tonight on HBO:
God is Bigger Than Elvis - the story of former Hollywood actress Dolores Hart, who left it all behind to become a Benedictine nun.
The only child of divorced Chicago parents, Dolores Hart was plucked from obscurity to play Elvis’ love interest in 1957’s ‘Loving You,’ and when she received his first on-screen kiss, Hollywood instantly fell for the gorgeous 19-year-old.
She was subsequently engaged to handsome young architect Don Robinson and starred in a number of other high-profile movies, including 1957’s ‘Wild Is the Wind,’ with Anthony Quinn, 1958’s ‘King Creole’ (also with Elvis), 1960’s ‘Where the Boys Are,’ 1961’s ‘Francis of Assisi’ and 1963’s ‘Come Fly with Me,’ her final film.
Hart surprised Hollywood, her friends and especially her fiancé when she joined the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Conn. to become a cloistered Benedictine nun. ‘I never felt I was leaving Hollywood,’ says Mother Prioress Dolores Hart, recalling her decision today. ‘God was the vehicle, the ‘bigger Elvis,’” she asserts with a smile.
It didn’t win, but the film was nominated for an Oscar in the appropriate category, and she went back to Hollywood for the event for the first time since she’d left.
Her former fiance never stopped loving her, and she him, but she was called. He visited her at the abbey every single year since she’d left until his death last year.
Her interview with Raymond Arroyo.
Mother Dolores was a very close friend to actress Patricia Neal .. and Neal in her last days became a Catholic and is buried at the Abbey.
