Item Description...
Sally Field parlayed her winsome TV personality honed in Gidget into the unlikely hit The Flying Nun from 1967 to 1970. Field plays Sister Bertrille, a 90-pound novice nun assigned to a crumbling convent in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where the gusty winds and her order's seagull-shaped headgear combine to give her the ability to zoom around the Caribbean helping her fellow sisters and the kids attending their school. While most of us remember the flying part--and what a great fantasy for kid viewers, especially--the gist of the series focused more about Sister Bertrille's naivet and of her youthful determination to make changes in her stuffy convent. Sister Bertrille provides a lot of fish-out-of-water appeal, and the supporting cast is extremely likable, including the narrator, Sister Jacqueline (the great character actress Marge Redmond), and a young Shelley Morrison, who plays the American-slang-mangler Sister Sixto ("She's sharp as a tick!"), and who would go on to play poker-faced Rosario on Will & Grace. Sister Bertrille's character also owes more than a nod to Maria von Trapp; she even gets the orphan students out of their scratchy uniforms and into comfier duds, though admittedly not made of Austrian drapes. The scrapes Sister Bertrille gets into are pretty standard '60s sitcom fare, but Field's sweet earnestness gives the show appeal beyond the sum of its pieces. --A.T. Hurley

Two-time Academy Award-winner Sally Field (1984, Actress in a Leading Role, Places in the Heart), flies in and out of trouble as Sister Bertrille in this classic and timeless series. Always with benevolent aims, Sister Bertrille gets into all kinds of hysterical situations and manages to get in trouble with Sister Jaqueline (Marge Redmond), with the Reverend Mother Superior (Madeleine Sherwood) and with a local clubowner, Carlos Ramirez (Alejandro Rey). From being mistaken for enemy aircraft to having a pelican fall in love with her to disrupting a meeting of mobsters, Sister Bertrille constantly manages to find herself in precarious and hilarious situations.

A Step Back in Time!  Sep 3, 2007
Even though I can see the cables holding Sister Bertrille in flight, I still enjoyed each and every Season One episode. Sister Sixto's misuse of the American slang right through to Mother Superior's understanding of all that happens at her convent. My favourite guest star has to be Rich Little, as Brother Paul!
Good for all ages  Mar 21, 2007
Good family movie. Good quality entertainment. I Recommend it highly. Quality of this product is excellent.
Brings back silly fun from the 60's as a kid  Feb 18, 2007
Though Sally Field candidly explains how she disliked doing 'The Flying Nun', it answers questions about why her acceptance speech 'You like me, you really like me'. It was a tough decision as an actor to take a part that in her gut she really wanted to pass on and it proved to be the butt of a joke on her for many years - a cloud over her budding hopeful career. How uplifting it was Sally Field rose above the silly series character to become one of our most famous and twice Academy Award winning actress of our age. I say 'Go Girl!' and I have nothing but fond memories of 'The Flying Nun' and have enjoyed seeing is again on this DVD set.
Nostalgia  Feb 10, 2007
Wonderful series. Sally Field and the rest of the cast is fantastic. Pure family entertainment. I especially enjoyed the Portuguese audio track! Great! I'd like to ask Sony to release the following seasons and also to complete another great series collection: Charlie's Angels ( Could you include the portuguese audio track as well? ), releasing seasons 4 and 5.
Thank you Sony.
The Flying Nun is hilarious!  Sep 20, 2006
I thought The Flying Nun was largely forgotten, but given the amount of trashy and low-quality "entertainment" which is flying off the production lines, it warms my heart to see such quality shows like "The Flying Nun" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" being released on DVD. Even the kids enjoyed watching Sister Bertrille, Carlos and the gang. Buy it!
