Elly May Calmpett  played by actress Donna Douglas is remembered by Max Baer, the only remaining cast remember of The Beverly Hillbillies, still alive.  Baer called Douglas, as being “Elly May until the day she died.”  Baer played Jethro Bodine, Elly’s cousin on the sitcom.  When Baer saw photos of Douglas signing, she stayed in character and dressed in the same kind of outfits she wore on the show.  Baer last saw Douglas in 2013 at a signing in L.A. and was unaware that Douglas was battling pancreatic cancer.  Baer said Douglas was a very private person, un like himself.
