Mother Dolores Hart

Mon Nov 11, 2013 4:49 am

I had the pleasure of meeting and listening to Mother Dolores Hart today. She was kind enough to sign several items for me and my wife. This is my favorite. The King Creole Frame by Frame book. She was very sweet and had some interesting Stories about working with Elvis.
A Nice Day.

Neat. Where did you have the chance to meet the former Presley co-star?

She was speaking and doing a book signing at the Holy Cross Ministries in Easton, Massachusetts. Part of a three date mini book signing tour in and around Boston.

Mother Hart is still an old pro -- she did not sign that book as the nun she is now ("Mother Hart") but the actress she used to be ("Dolores Hart").

That shows a thoughtfulness to the fans who cherish her work with Elvis Presley. No wonder Elvis loved her -- she is obviously a sweetheart to this very day.

She really surprised me. It was the first time I had met her and listened to her. I had seen the HBO documentary "God is the bigger Elvis" in fact I bought a copy and she also signed the sleeve for us. But I was taken back by how well she told her stories. I could tell that she had a great reverence for those Hollywood days. She had nothing but praise for Elvis. She spoke for over an hour standing at the pulpit, and then signed every copy of her book for people. I handed out a few 8x10's to grateful audience members of her with Elvis, so they would have something special from the day. There were over 350 people in attendance and she stayed until everyone got there book or memento signed. She was supposed to be there from 2 to 4pm, but was still there signing books with her braced hand at 5.35 when we left. Not bad for a 75 year old sweet Hart.

There was a newspaper photographer there and I asked him if he would send me a few photos that he took. Knowing he had a better camera and vantage point than Cathi and I. The very next morning 15 great shots arrived in my mailbox. I think her kindness and spirit rubbed off on everyone that day.
Here is one of those newspaper shots. Photo taken by Ken Souza.
