From Hollywood to Holy Vows: A featured conversation with Mother Dolores Hart

July 1, 2013

Dolores Hart was a rising starlet in Hollywood in the 50's and 60's with ten successful movies to her credit by the time she was 26 years old. She starred opposite the likes of Elvis Presley, Montgomery Clift, Anthony Quinn and Robert Wagner. She had everything she ever dreamed of. Then she made a surprising decision: She left all the glitz and glamour of hollywood and entered a Benedictine monastery. Her story is now a book, The Ear of the Heart, published by Ignatius Press.
This week on the final program of this year's season of the SLHour: A feature interview with Mother Dolores Hart. Also, Mark Matthews tells us what’s good in Hollywood and Sarah Hart returns as featured artist of the week.
