The Gold Statues have been handed to the winners. The Red Carpet has been trampled and now the media is recapping the event, but something is missing.
Reverend Mother Dolores Hart is missing from the morning newsfeed. Don’t misunderstand I think that all the actors were honored to have been nominated, but I think more should be said about the wonderful actress — now nun — who walked last night’s Red Carpet.
You may wonder why I feel this way; it’s because I remember her films: Where the Boys Are, Come Fly With Me and the wonderful Lisa with Stephen Boyd. I remember seeing Lisa at the movies, and it haunted me. It’s the story of a Jewish woman who survived a concentration camp and with Stephen Boyd’s help tries to enter Israel.
It was great to see Dolores Hart back in Hollywood after all these years, and to discover that her documentary God Is Bigger Than Elvis will be aired on HBO April 5, but I wish the media would talk more about her and her beliefs. In this age of people turning their backs on Religion, it’s gratifying to see someone who believes that God truly is bigger than Elvis.
