Jean Stapleton

The more I researched actor Jean Stapleton, the more I liked her. I remembering catching “All in the Family” as a kid, and not understanding it AT ALL. But now I could watch episode after episode: fantastic, tight writing and sublime acting.


Here is my recent obituary for Stapleton, for NPR. I’m very happy with it and how I managed to incorporate lot’s of sounds and excerpts from other people. By looking at the choices Stapleton made in her career, I could see that she had a deep respect and love for women.
