While Paul Rudnick was writing the screenplay, Bette Midler (who was attached to star at the time) suggested he should go to an actual convent to do research. So he went to stay in the Regina Laudis Abbey in Bethlehem, Connecticut. The Prioress of this convent was Mother Dolores Hart, O.S.B., who as a younger woman had been an actress, singer, and dancer in such Hollywood films as the Elvis vehicle King Creole and the beach romance Where the Boys Are. Mother Hart is still the only known nun to be a voting member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and she and her fellow nuns enjoy watching her Academy screeners every year.
