The Flying Gidget

Fresh off of GIDGET, the future Oscar-winning actress Sally Field starred in this gimmicky comedy with a real heart. Nuns were big in the sixties (THE SOUND OF MUSIC, THE SINGING NUN, etc) and THE FLYING NUN was based on a novel about a novice who was so lightweight that a good air current enabled her to fly. Peopled with good actors playing memorable characters, the show quickly got past the need for the novelty and, in fact, it seemed a burden trying to fit it in every episode.

  1. I have The Flying Nun LP record. Field is not a bad singer, better than Barbara Eden anyway.
