Very sweet story! A "first" kiss witnessed by 30 odd crewmembers.

Heres Dolores Hart - now Mother Dolores, a Benedictine Prioress - describing that first kiss and more about Elvis in an interview she did for a friend of mine on BBC World Service last year. Enjoy!

I never really thought about it, but I guess he never did kiss Debra Paget [his screen wife] in Love Me Tender, did he ?

Bet he wanted to !

Yes Joe another era :)

Colin, Elvis often had his arms around Debra Paget......so near yet so far away from the kiss he yearned for.

Back in the 50s it was reported Debra was more interested in Howard Hughes...or her mother was..on her behalf :)
Debra was far more voluptuous than Dolores, who was only innocently beautiful. :blush:

Thanks for the link Elvis_Priestly, I saw a similiar interview on Ireland's TV3... 20/20 Documentary a few years ago, we have it on video.

I haven't watched the movie, so I don't know if there was/wasn't an on-screen kiss, but I do remember seeing publicity still where he's definitely made contact, although she doesn't look too thrilled, IMO. I believe the photo is in the Images of Elvis book.
