God is Bigger Than Elvis

It's now on HBO On Demand. I just watched it and it gets 4 stars. Very moving. I had no idea all the big names Delores Hart worked with. Elvis was the least of the bunch.

She was engaged to someone named Don Robinson. Not a clue who he was. Looked him up and he was a successful architect. He met and fell in love with Delores.

Watch the documentary for the rest. It's quite beautiful.

Isn't it sacrilegious to talk about God's equipment?

Saw it and loved it, too.

She was a stunner in her youth.

And, she is hardcore because she is "The Reverend Mother Dolores Hart is Prioress, of the Abbey of Regina Laudis."

This documentary is just the right length and rather fascinating. Nicely edited to boot.

Don Robinson died 11/29/11. He never married but remained very close to Delores and he continued to visit her annually. In lieu of flowers he asked that donations be made to Delores Hart's Abbey in Connecticut.

That's quite a love story.

I gotta say, judging from the Connecticut grounds and beautifully designed convent, chapel and refectory: if you gotta live the life of a contemplative, Regina Laudis is the place to do it.

Hart was like a young Grace Kelly. She conveyed such intelligence in her roles, especially her most famous "Where the Boys Are", where she argues for premarital sex in a classrom in her first scene in the movie.

The final scene in the movie is where Robinson and Hart say goodbye after a visit. Robinson had never gotten over her (he says as much) and Hart never did either. As he departs, Hart's expression is heartbreaking. She'll never be together with the only man she'd ever loved. Then she crosses herself.

Saw this yesterday. Very moving. I was confused though when one of the nuns being interviewed says they are very sexual and don't deny themselves of their sexuality.

I think this would be a very peaceful life.

I'm glad Don died before Delores. Don't think he would have lasted too long in a world without her.

Really beautiful film.
