    I probably wouldn't even mention her if it wasn't because she performed in one of the most memorable episodes of The Twilight Zone, "Eye of the Beholder".

    I don't really recall that much from the Beverly Hillbillies. Guess was too young when they broadcast it in national TV in Peru, but well, I recall her from that beloved episode of TZ.

    Donna Douglas dies; actress played Elly May on 'Beverly Hillbillies'
    Donna Douglas, a Louisiana beauty queen turned actress who tapped into her poor Southern roots for the role of Elly May Clampett in the long-running TV sitcom "The Beverly Hillbillies," has died. Her age was variously reported as 81 or 82.

    Douglas died of pancreatic cancer Thursday in Baton Rouge, La., her niece Charlene Smith told the Associated Press.

    Lovely lady. I grew up on BEVERLY HILLBILLIES reruns and her TWILIGHT ZONE episode is superb. Rest In Peace.
