Donna Douglas, who played Elly May Clampett on The Beverly Hillbillys, has died at age 81. Ain't that a bitch. Gone to be with her critters, apparently. Sic transit mundi.
(I didn't realize, until now, that she was the "face" undergoing surgery in that classic old Twilight Zone episode, "Eye of the Beholder." You know, the one with the pig-faced surgeons? For this adolescent viewing that face for the first time, it was instant lust and never forgotten, though I never knew her name. Guess I can lay that fantasy to rest now.)
