Click here to read about the financial troubles Mother Dolores Hart’s convent is in as it needs millions of dollars to meet fire and safety codes. Dolores is the former starlet who played Elvis Presley’s love interest in Loving You (1957) and King Creole (1958).

After scoring a Tony Award nomination for her Broadway debut in The Pleasure of His Company, she returned to Hollywood in 1960. She was topped billed in the classic beach movie Where the Boys Are and went on to co-star in, among others, Francis of Asssisi (playing a nun) in 1961; Lisa (1962) as a Jewish refuge trying to get to Palestine after WWII; and her last movie Come Fly with Me (1963) as a gold digging stewardess.

    Very interesting. Did not know that Pat Neal (one of my favorite actors) was buried there. Notice the discrepancy in Mother Dolores’s age: the author claims she’s 73 now but was 23 in 1963 … bad math!

    • That is for sure. She was no starlet in 1963 when she won her Oscar for Hud! LOL
