Archie Bunker Meets Our Man Flint
18 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A most intriguing episode of the innovative and always well written series which still holds up to the test of time and remains relevant and riveting.

Carroll O'Connor and James Coburn guest star as the butler and chauffeur, respectively for a wealthy socialite who is murdered enabling her daughter, the prime suspect, to inherit the family's 100 year old home. The plot thickens as we learn Lt. Parker is a lifelong friend of the family and the butler and chauffeur conspire individually, but no worries because the butler didn't do it.

Quite intriguing the guests O'Connor and Coburn working together in 1962, a few years later James would score big as Our Man Flint and Carroll became the ground breaking TV character Archie Bunker of the early 1970s.

It's curious to note that the leading detective of the series-portrayed by Paul Burke is named Det. Flint, same as the future movie spy played by Coburn for 2 films.
