Personal Quote:

[on offering another role] I was offered to do a nighttime soap after The Beverly Hillbillies (1962). There was so much I didn't want to do because of family values.

Trivia:

During the filming of The Beverly Hillbillies (1962) she and Irene Ryan would annually put on a huge Christmas party for the show's staff and families. See more »
