Donna Douglas, Elly May Clampett on ‘Beverly Hillbillies,’ Dies at 81

2 January 2015 11:28 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Donna Douglas, who played the ditsy Elly May Clampett on “The Beverly Hillbillies,” died Friday at her home in Zachary, La., according to a report by CBS affiliate Wafb-tv in Baton Rouge, La. She was 81.

Douglas starred as the naive only daughter of the oil-rich Clampett clan in the CBS sitcom that ran from 1962 to 1971. Buddy Ebsen played patriarch Jed Clampett, who moves his family from the Ozarks to Beverly Hills after stumbling into oil riches.

Douglas’ Elly May was known for her love of all kinds of “critters,” as well as for her shapely figure, form-fitting jeans and cascade of blond curls. The actress was a series regular throughout the run of the top-rated show, which was the first in a triptych of corny countrified sitcoms from creator Paul Henning that included “Petticoat Junction” and “Green Acres.”

Elly May’s love of “critters” was inspired by Douglas’ real-life affection for animals, »
