    Comments about this product:

    I found this documentary fastinating. Based on the life of a successful movie star with films w Elvis, Montomery Cliff etc etc. How she came to choose being a nun versus family and Hollywood and a man that loved her deeply and still does! The interviews w the nuns was so revealing and real. I was glued to the screen.

            Comments about this product:

            As a friend of the Abbey of Regina Laudis, knowing more about the life of the nuns, and in particular Mother Dolores Hart, is a very good thing. HBO did a superlative job in pulling together the various facets of Hart's life in light of Benedictine monasticism. I love the whole video: the interviews, vintage images, the sacred music, and the humanity of Mother Dolores in following her God-given vocation.

            I think the DVD is perfect for adult faith formation, personal interest, and vocation promotion. Or simply, "God is the Bigger Elvis" is a great human interest work.
