You've Got Mother Dolores Hart (VIDEO)

Mother Dolores Hart began her acting career at the age of 17 in the film "Loving You" with Elvis Presley. "I went back to school and the girls all said, 'Did you get a lock of his hair?'" she laughs. "I said, 'Are you joking?'"

After seven years and 11 films, Hart left the big screen to answer a higher calling. In the above video, Mother Hart discusses working with "The King" and the trip to a monastery at 23 that changed her life.
