Bethlehem,   Connecticut,  USA.   2014.


   "Rev. Mother Dolores Hart (born October 20, 1938) is an American Roman Catholic nun and former actress. She made ten films in five years, playing opposite Stephen Boyd, Montgomery Clift, George Hamilton, and Robert Wagner, having made her movie debut with Elvis Presley in  Loving You (1957). By the early 1960s an established leading lady, she "stunned Hollywood" by announcing that she would be giving up her career to enter a convent. She is now Prioress of the Benedictine Abbey of Regina Laudis in Connecticut."   (Wikipedia)


   "Born Dolores Hicks, she was the only child of actor Bert Hicks and Harriet Hicks, who separated when she was three years old, and ultimately divorced. She stated "As a child I was precocious. My parents married when they were 16 and 17 and both were beautiful people. Moss Hart offered my mother, Harriett, a contract but by then they had me and my father, Bert Hicks, a bit player, definitely a Clark Gable type, had movie offers so we moved from Chicago to Hollywood. I was a Hollywood brat. We lived in Beverly Hills and I used to visit the lots with him. He had a bit part in Forever Amber. I always wanted to be part of that life."   (Wikipedia)
