from Elvis’ first onscreen kiss to nunnery

26 Feb

She is nominated for an Academy Award, and might receive an “Oscar” statuette tonight at the awards ceremony.

She will walk the red carpet in the full habit of a cloistered nun.

She gave Elvis Presley his first onscreen kiss, as they both blushed.

The man to whom she was engaged when she entered the convent has never married.
