While driving Munson's cab, Archie saves the life of a beautiful woman who becomes unconscious. Uh, was that a woman? Sorry, that was no woman, thanks to female impersonator Beverly LaSalle's convincing act.

Storyline

Archie comes home all excited because he has been deemed a hero. It seems that while driving Munson's cab the woman in the backseat passed out, and he administered mouth-to-mouth and brought her around again. Later, the woman, named Beverly, comes by the house to thank him. While talking to Edith, Beverly reveals something startling - she is really a man, a female impersonator. When Archie comes back and attempts conversation, Beverly takes the wig off and reveals the truth. Archie is humiliated and doesn't want any press, despite the fact that a reporter is looking for him. The reporter catches up with him at Kelcy's and starts asking questions but Archie wants to forget the whole thing. The reporter goes into the men's room where he catches Beverly and returns demanding the truth from Archie. Beverly saves him by telling the reporter that it was a truck driver who administered CPR. Archie is grateful and tells her that for a dame, she's one hell of a guy. Written by Jerry Roberts <armchair-cinema@hotmail.com>

Beverly La Salle-Archie Bunker
30 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was very funny, to this day! Sad to see he/she died in 1984 in San Francisco. I bet he/she had a great time riding the coat-tails of her appearance on All in the Family. I bet there was a tour, a dance show and many other shows from him/her related to this episode. I hope he/she made good money for the work performed. Those were good-old-days to be clubbing in San Fran, NY, Dallas and LA. I was at all those places back then and still to this day. Great times for the country as well, simpler times, fun times. God Bless Archie and Beverly. I will be sure to get a copy to show on the "big screen" in my home during parties. Great entertainment. Thanks for the laughs 33 years later!!! RussJFK
