My good friend J of the UK, a matey chap if ever there was one, alerted me to a grooooovy YouTube filmette.
It is in an entry over at the wonderful Roman Miscellany. I can’t believe I missed this one (20 May).
Here is eminent Fr. Schofield’s description:
Change of Habit
As I sit here at my computer, I can clearly hear the drums and shouts from our monthly Nigerian Mass. For some reason it made me think of the final scene of Elvis’ last movie, Change of habit (1969), which presents the rather novel spectacle of Mr Presley singing and playing the guitar at what seems to be an interim Mass (just before the 1970 Missal). The celebrant is ad orientem and the offertory procession is unusually reverent. I love the grumpy priest! Do any American readers recognise the church?
The film is all about Sister Michelle (Mary Tyler Moore) meeting a doctor (Elvis) whilst on pastoral placement. You’ll be pleased to know that in the end she defeats temptation and dumps Elvis in order to go back to the convent.
Apparently it was filmed in the chapel of Mayfield Senior School, Pasadena, CA (USA), a college preparatory school for young women grades 9-12 established in 1931 by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus.
