Donna Douglas on Adam-12


Donna Douglas on ADAM-12 circa 1973

Actress: Donna Douglas Known for: THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES Project: ADAM-12 Episode: THE BEAST Year: 1973 Genre: TV Cop Show Character: Nina Draper Traits: Donna Douglas, who very recently passed away, was known primarily for her role as blonde bombshell Elly May Clampett on the iconic TV series THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES. She also co-starred with Elvis Presley as Frankie in FRANKIE & JOHNNY, one of The King’s better cinematic ventures. But we center on a cameo during Season 5 of ADAM-12 where Donna plays Nina Draper, a conceited rich woman who called the blue boys to arrest a Peeping Tom who, it turns out, is really a friendly widower wanting to revisit his former home. Nag Rating: 5… Although the viciousness is subtle being that Nina represents upper class snobbery. Best Part: Scenes with the lovely blonde Donna as well as brunette hottie Lenore Stevens, showcased in the next Cinema Starlets post. You Missed: As mentioned earlier, it was reported that Donna passed away. Throughout her career, she didn’t do enough roles after BEVERLY HILLBILLIES, although beforehand she played an unveiling part in a famously creepy TWILIGHT ZONE episode titled EYE OF THE BEHOLDER.
