One of her many marriages was to a Catholic, Nicky Hilton and, according to at least one biographer, she considered converting:
Francis Taylor [Elizabeth’s father] didn’t approve of Elizabeth’s proposed conversion to the Catholic faith. In April Elizabeth, too, had second thoughts, after learning that she’d have to sign an oath promising to bring her children up in the church. At Mtro, which was performing corporate sommersaults to support her wedding because of all the free publicity for Bride, Pandro Berman prediced a flare-up of what he called Elizabeth’s “crazy defiance.” The couple reached a compromise, and on April 15 an announcement appeared in newspapers stating that though the wedding would be Roman Catholic, Elizabeth would remain Protestant…The Taylor-Hilton wedding was the great celebrity event of 1950, held at 5 P.M. on Sunday, May 6, at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Beverly Hills–“Our Lady of the Cadillacs,” as it was known, because of the richness of the parishioners…
After a Catholic Mass, Nicky slipped a $10,000 platinum-and-diamond wedding band on Elizabeth’s finger, and they kissed so long that Monsignor Patrick J. Concannon told Elizabeth, “I think that’s long enough, dear.”
