Flying Nun Tidbits

Elsie Ethrington (Sally Field) overhears her aunt discussing missionary work and decided to become a nun and devote herself to good works.

She goes to the Convent San Tanco in San Juan, Puerto Rico where she is ordained Sister Bertrille.

Now here's the amazing part. Due to the design of her coronet (headgear) and her light weight (90 pounds) Sister Bertrille can fly! How is that? "When lift plus thrust is greater than load plus drag," she explains.

Flying wasn't always a great skill to have as she was often flying into trouble with Mother Superior (Madeleine Sherwood).

Passings

Alejandro Rey died in 1987 of lung cancer, and Vito Scotti in 1996 of lung cancer.
