The Beverly Hillbillies ran for 9 years on CBS (1962-1971), topping the ratings in its first two seasons and earning 7 Emmy nominations. The sitcom about a rural family who moved to Beverly Hills after striking it rich on oil featured BUDDY EBSEN as patriarch Jed Clampett, DONNA DOUGLAS as his daughter Ellie May, and MAX BAER, JR. as relative Jethro Bodine. Attempting to attract a more urban audience, CBS cancelled all of its rustic comedy hits (Green Acres, Mayberry RFD, Petticoat Junction and Hee Haw, in 1970 or 1971. Originally a dancer, BUDDY EBSEN (1908-2003), born Christian Rudolph Ebsen, Jr., did just that in many films of the 1930s. Later a sidekick to Western heroes Rex Allen and Fess Parker, Ebsen also played serious character roles, as in Night People (1955). Ebsen was the original choice to play The Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz (1939), but proved allergic to the silver makeup applied to his skin. His greatest success came on TV, where he starred in two popular series of his own, The Beverly Hillbillies (1962-1971) and Barnaby Jones (1973-1980). Actress/singer DONNA DOUGLAS (1933-2015) is best known for her role as Elly May Clampett on TV's The Beverly Hillbillies (1962-1971). The series was #1 in the Nielsen ratings in its first two seasons. Douglas, a former Miss New Orleans (1957), was also an accomplished gospel singer. MAX BAER, JR. (born Maximilian Adalbert Baer, Jr. in 1937) is best known for his role as Jethro Bodine on the hit TV series, The Beverly Hillbillies (1962-1971). Baer, who also played Jethrene Bodine on the show from 1962-1963, became so typecast in the role that he was unable to find work for three years after the series ended. He finally returned to the screen in Macon County Line (1974), a film that he co-wrote and produced. The son of former heavyweight boxing champion Max Baer, he had made his acting debut in 1960, guest starring on such TV series as Hawaiian Eye, Maverick and Surfside 6 that year. Baer has also appeared in made-for-TV movies and guest starred on a number of other shows. Also a director as well as producer and writer, Baer began investigating the gaming business and purchased licensing rights for The Beverly Hillbillies name and characters to enable him to build his own theme casino.
