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.

Ms. Douglas sued (successfully) Mattel, maintaining the Company used her as the model for the "Barbie" doll.

Note how many people leave, around New Years?

RIP.
