Dolores Hart was a young beautiful actress in the late 50’s – early 60’s, who was being compared to Grace Kelly
She co-starred with Elivs and made the campy classic Where The Boys Are – she had it all – or did she?
Engaged but lost – she found religion and in 1963 Dolores gave it all up and became a nun – keeping her name as per her mothers request – she went on to a full life and is still living in the Abbey in CT
If you write to Mother Dolores at the Abbey she will write back and even sign autographs
In 2006, she visited Hollywood again after 43 years in monastery to raise awareness for peripheral idiopathic neuropathy disorder, a neurological disorder that afflicts many Americans, including herself. i heard she was also going to see her friend Mariette Hartley in a show – I told a select few and we went to the theatre in hopes of seeing and meeting her – she was gracious and signed autographs and took pictures with us
Here is one of the photos I got signed that day
