For the past several days I've been seeing a story on Google News, which I look at several times a day, with a headline about "The Nun Who Kissed Elvis." I didn't pay any attention, figuring that it was just some silly episode, probably from the '60s, in which a foolish nun developed a crush on Elvis. But this morning the story appeared in our local paper, and I found that it was nothing of the sort. Here's the same AP story that was in the paper. The paper also included a picture of her as a young woman. She was, as her film career would indicate, quite a beauty.
There is an intriguing spiritual biography here. I was especially struck by the continued connection with her onetime fiancé, because I once contemplated using just such a story in a novel that I don't expect ever to write now, but had serious doubts as to whether it was plausible, whether any order of nuns would have permitted such a thing.
