The Dolores Hart Celebrations Start Today!


My Dolores Hart Blogathon, known as From the Star to A Star: Celebrating Dolores Hart, is finally here! I’ve announced this event at the end of July, so obviously we waited a lot!

Dolores Hart is a great lady who surely deserves her own blogathon. Plus, this event will hopefully make you understand how special she is and why she deserves more recognition, not only as a short-time actress and then as a nun but also as a person.


I’m reminding you that the event starts today, October 18 and will take an end on October 20, 2018, on the occasion of Dolores’s 80th birthday. To submit your entry, you can comment on this post or send me an email at I also invite you to link this post to your entry!

So, without further ado, here are our lovely entries:


Andrew at The Stop Button tells us why Lonelyhearts is far from being a perfect film but deserves a watch for the actor performances.


MovieRob gives us is own interesting perspective of Lisa aka The Inspector.


Patricia over at Caftan Woman discusses The Mountain of the Sun, an episode of The Virginian in which Dolores Hart appeared during her last year as an actress.


For the occasion I, at The Wonderful World of Cinema, wrote my own personal tribute to this wonderful woman!


For his second contribution, MovieRob tells us about Francis of Assisi, a film that interestingly reflects Dolores Hart’s own life.


The lovely Samantha over at Musings of a Classic Film Addict tells us all about Dolores Hart’s last film: Come Fly with Me!


In her excellent article, Leticía from Crítica Retrô tells us why Dolores and Elvis’s second film, King Creole, can be considered a noir.


Finally, Robin from Pop Culture Reverie presents us a thoughtful analysis of Where the Boys Are


Thanks so much for your participation, everybody! I know Mother Dolores would be honoured! Happy 80th birthday to her!
