List of All In The Family episodes

Archie is Cursed was the 14th episode of the fourth season and the 75th overall episode of All In The Family. The Season 4 episode first aired on CBS-TV on December 15, 1973. The episode was co-directed by John Rich and Bob LaHendro.

SynopsisEdit

It's Archie vs. Irene in a game of pool at Kelcy's Bar. The match is set up when Archie claims (without proof) that men are superior in all ways in all sports to women. Hurt by his claims, Irene immediately reveals her success in pool tournaments and demands a match to prove her point. Archie later tries to back out, claiming Frank "cursed" him by giving him a bad back (through a curse known as the malocchio or "evil eye") in time for the pool game. Frank and Irene use Archie's greed to prove he doesn't have a bad back....and the pool game is on...!

SummaryEdit

ven under normal circumstances, Archie feels threatened by his intelligent and resourceful neighbor Irene Lorenzo. When Irene challenges Archie to a high-stakes game of pool, he is so intimidated by the possibility of losing that he begs off, using a "bad back" as his excuse. Written by John Rappaport, Michael Ross, and Bernie West, this episode is a low-key spoof of the "Battle of the Sexes" tennis match between Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King, which had occurred only a few weeks earlier. Note: Bob Hastings appears as Tommy Kelsey; Sherman Hemsley appears as George Jefferson. Betty Garrett appears as Irene Lorenzo and Vincent Gardenia appears as Frank Lorenzo.
