Dolores Hart Elvis
February 24, 2012 by staff
Dolores Hart Elvis, The speculation will continue until the last minute about the fashion parade in store for us at the Oscars this weekend, but we can be sure that at least one of the actresses trooping into Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre will be wearing black — the black habit of the Benedictine order of nuns.
The last time Dolores Hart walked the Academy Awards red carpet — in 1962 — she was the blushing starlet who had given Elvis Presley his first screen kiss.
After a whirlwind rise to stardom, the 23-year-old beauty had secured a $1?million contract and roles opposite some of Hollywood’s leading men.
But then she gave it all up — disappearing from public life so completely she might have been a figment of some movie mogul’s imagination.
But this Sunday she will finally return as the woman she chose to become — Mother Dolores, prioress of a cloistered nunnery in rural Connecticut, a Benedictine nun who has spent the past 50 years living a life of hard manual work, contemplation and prayer.
Now 73, she has agreed to make a rare foray from her isolated life at the Abbey of Regina Laudis in order to celebrate an Oscar-nominated documentary, God Is The Bigger Elvis, which has been made about her life.
She says she is enormously excited about the biggest night in the showbusiness calendar — even if she has to go up on stage.
And while the Oscars may not be used to people who dress in plain clothes and walk with a stick, this is a woman who’s already experienced the sort of movie star adulation about which many of today’s preening, pouting actresses in their megabucks designer gowns can only dream.
