Some Watching Television Notes

June 12, 2018

Last night, some nice memories and coincidences manifested, as I watched television shows and movies of past years.

The seminal show, “All in the Family” had 4 major guest appearances, two by actors alive in their 90’s, in the episode “Archie sees a mugging.”

One, Bill Macy, appeared in the episode, a role preceding that of “Walter” on “Maude.”


“Maude,” “Edith Bunker’s” cousin, (Edith of course played brilliantly by Jean Stapleton), later a series also developed by another in his 90’s, the great Norman Lear, is referenced in the episode. Bea Arthur played the role of “Maude.”

Also appearing and in his 90’s is Val Bisoglio.

Later, switching channels, there he was lamenting how little a dollar buys, playing “Tony Manero’s” father in “Saturday Night Fever,” which of course starred John Travolta as “Tony Manero.”

In future posts, I will have more comments and coincidences.
