Her biggest break came in 1961 with 'Where the Boys Are', in which four college girls get away from the cold and spend spring break in Fort Lauderdale. That same year, Dolores made Francis of Assisi, in which our lady joins up with a monk to found her own order. A bit of foreshadowing, perhaps. She had reached a point where she was beginning to long for more than Hollywood could provide. She told Look magazine, 'Before I was twenty, I learned that being in movies didn't bring me the ultimate joy I expected'. In 1963, after finishing 'Come Fly With Me', Dolores entered a convent, and in 1970, took her final vows to become a nun. Today, she's Mother Dolores at the Convent of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem Connecticut.

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
