The Flying Nun

Saturday, July 06, 2019

The Flying Nun, 1967-70
Sally Field played Sister Bertrille, a 90 pounds novice nun @ Convent San Tanco in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The winds there could be fierce. Added to to winged cap she wore, she could fly. As she said: "When lift plus thrust is greater than load plus drag, anything can fly."



Trivia: Sally hated the The Flying Nun gig and was embarrassed by it.



Wind Beneath My Wings, I know it best from the movie Beaches, 1988, & Bette Midler’s version.




Oh, oh, it must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You were content to let me shine, that's your way
You always walked a step behind



So I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strength
A beautiful face without a name, for so long
A beautiful smile to hide the pain



Did you ever know that you're my hero?
And everything I would like to be
I can fly higher than an eagle
For you are the wind beneath my wings



It might have appeared to go unnoticed
But I've got it all here in my heart
I want you to know, I know the truth, 'cause I know you
I would be nothing without you


(Last of his kind)

Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I wish I could be
I could fly higher than an eagle
For you are the wind beneath my wings


(Catch em if you can)

Did I ever tell you you're my hero?
You're everything, everything I wish I could be
Oh and I, I can fly higher than an eagle
For you are the wind beneath my wings
'Cause you are the wind beneath my wings
Oh wind beneath my wings, you, you, you
You are the wind beneath my wings



Fly, fly, fly away
You let me fly so high, oh you, you, you
The wind beneath my wings
Oh you, you, you, the wind beneath my wings



Fly, fly, fly high against the sky
So high I almost touch the sky
Thank you, thank you
Thank God for you, the wind beneath my wings
