Dolores Hart digs Elvis... and Arthur Lyman !

Wed Jan 08, 2014 10:41 pm

I have this fine picture of Dolores Hart that I'm sure I took from one of The fool's great topics on vintage articles, but can't really place it right now.

Anyway, Dolores is looking at the back cover of the "Loving You" album, but she's also holding other records.

I managed to find one of them. It's a 1958 album called "Taboo", by Arthur Lyman (HiFi Record - R / SR-806)

Here's the original photo, the detail with the image of the album, and then better images of the record (with their source), as well a YouTube link with the title song, and the Wikipedia entry for Lyman. What more can you ask for ?

Taboo is probably the LP that set in motion Dolores Hart's move to the convent in 1963. ;-)

The photo of the lovely actress was probably taken in October 1958. She was starring on Broadway at the Longacre Theatre in this Samuel Taylor comedy:

Hart portrayed "Jessica Poole." The production was a great success, with a very funny, surprise ending that director Billy Wilder may have borrowed for his 1959 comedy classic, "Some Like It Hot." It ran for over a year, and was then made into an award-winning 1961 Paramount film, with Debbie Reynolds being cast as "Jessica."

One wonders if Elvis knew that Dolores made it to a hit Broadway production?

Could this have been another unfulfilled dream of his? We may never know for sure.
