A publicity still from the ABC television situation comedy, "The Flying Nun", which starred Sally Field (center), as Sister Bertrille. With her are actors Marge Redmond, left, and Shelley Morrison.

Confusingly, Versace also researched a book on Sister Mary Aquinas, the real flying nun from Manitowoc, although it was never published.
