Edith saves a life
26 March 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

A man visiting his aunt at the Sunshine home has a heart attack and Edith saves his life with CPR.

A fair episode with amusing moments, but seems like any other sitcom of the time. Edith is interviewed on TV by a stuck up newswoman (played by Priscilla Morrill) who treats Archie with disdain. Archie just sits back and takes it until adding one wisecrack before he leaves, unusual for him. There is a mawkish moment at the end when Archie watches Edith on TV and he remarks "She sure takes a beautiful picture on the television" and the audience goes "Awwwww" (GAG!)
