Archie Bunker's Near Death Experience



Carroll O'Connor knew that the main reason people watched All In The Family was to see his racist character Archie Bunker. So, in 1974 he went on a one man strike to get more money and more control over the show. The show was ready to try to move on without him though, even if his character was the most popular. The writers prepared a 3 episode script in which Archie died in a plane crash. O'Connor finally gave in and the story was rewritten with Archie getting drunk on the plane and getting off at the wrong airport.
