An award-winning, apple-cheeked player Madeleine Sherwood worked extensively on Broadway in the 1950s, and was still playing occasional character parts in the 80s. She is perhaps best known as the stern, conservative Mother Superior on the frothy ABC sitcom "The Flying Nun" (1966-70). Often billed as Thornton-Sherwood since 1980, she has operated a theater workshop under her hyphenated name.
