CA PODCAST EPISODE 72 – Bea Arthur


In 1971, Arthur was invited by Norman Lear to guest-star on his sitcom All in the Family, as Maude Findlay, the cousin of Edith Bunker. An outspoken liberal feminist, Maude was the antithesis role to the conservative Republican character Archie Bunker, who described her as a “New Deal fanatic”. Nearly 50, Arthur’s tart turn on All in the Family impressed viewers as well as executives at CBS who, she would later recall, asked “‘Who is that girl? Let’s give her her own series.’”
