Attention readers: I have been implementing a system that is nothing more than a note to myself; for cues that I want to include in a suite one day, for now on I will denote them with ^ symbol. It has no special meaning to anyone else but myself. No, the lack of an up arrow symbol doesn't mean the cue is bad (it just may have too much SFX or FX for suite use or just isn't worth my time to edit and include). Hence forth this system will be in all future threads and pre-exiting threads that I go back to for missed episodes. Anything in ( ) are just notes to the arrow and you need not bother with that. The system does not mean that I will make a suite or that one has been made, it's simply for my own reference if and when I do decide to.
13:38 in. And the cue after the commercial break.^(second)
John Astin guest stars.
24:50 in: The Jim Carey School for Learning English.
Trivia: While the speed of a commercial airliner can vary and also by altitude, one average places the speed at 460 to 575 MPH. Sorry, not even God is going to make a flying nun go that fast and survive the sheer forces of wind. Or keep you cloths from being ripped off, especially the flimsy hat.
"It's not my imagination -- I'm being held prisoner by a group of deranged nuns."
Fried did not score any episode of the series. From a 2021 interview (done long after the last time I did a search to answer this):
Q: You’re credited with scoring some episodes of THE FLYING NUN…?
Gerald Fried: Never did it. They probably tracked some of my music into that show. This happens a lot, and if they track over fifty percent of the piece then they have to give you credit. I also got credit on one or two SIMPSONs, they quoted my STAR TREK music on that show!
5:31 in. When I hear cues like this (the opening), I instantly know it's Barker without checking the end credits (which I am doing anyway).^
18:05 in. Might be tracked.^
I'll take the orchestral music for the Chinese chopsticks song. For some reason the producers decided the series needed to have random songs placed in it. Producer: "You know what the throwaway comedic scene about using chopsticks needs? A comedic chopsticks song for one minute sung by Sally Stevens! Yeah, I think it's a good idea -- why do you ask? Ah huh. Ah huh. Ah huh. You're fired."
Well, we get to see Stevens in beachwear, so that kind of makes up for the singing.
According to trivia for the show on IMDb, the producers were deep into preparation to have Sister Bertrille be none other than Gidget, who decided to become and a nun and was now leading a happy life. One season one episode shows clips of Bertrille's life before becoming a nun, and its just clips from "Gidget". At some point they decided -- for whatever reasons -- to not make Sister Bertrille be Gidget. This episode, for example, wipes out the maybe she was but it wasn't mentioned on-screen chances. In the end it's probably best, because Sally Field may have quit; reading multiple trivia items -- she hated the show with a passion and wouldn't even read the script until the last minute; seeing Gidget de-evolve into Sister Bertrille, probably would have enraged her and caused her to walk.
Had no idea Warren Barker had done so much on this show when he was already busy with "Bewitched" and would soon score S3 of "That Girl" and, after this, "My World and Welcome To It." I remember Earle Hagen writing in his autobiography that he thought Warren was an excellent writer (and he was), often having to write "That Girl" eps with a day's notice.
