She was a voluptuous tomboy with that hillbilly accent. The actress known as Elly Mae Clampett is no longer with us.
Donna Douglas passed away at her house in Louisiana on Friday at the age of 81, reportedly from pancreatic cancer.
She spent nine years as Elly Mae on the hugely popular show ‘Beverly Hillbillies.’
She was a real life tomboy who enjoyed the outdoors and playing sports. But she also entered beauty contests, which lead to her landing the role on the ‘Beverly Hillbillies.’
