Default Did Elly wear a wig?

I just watched the episode Donna was on in The Twilight Zone and her hair was short. The top and sides were curly like on the Beverly Hillbillies. So it made me wonder if the long hair she had on the show was a wig. Most of the time on TBH, she had a pony tail. But whatever, real or not, it was beautiful.

I think Elly wore a lot of extensions, pieces, that sort of thing. In the Lester Flat/Earl Scrubbs episode, Elly walks down the stairs in a gown, and meets their wives. My first thought was that she was wearing pieces. I think Donna had gorgeous hair anyway, but they just wanted it over-the-top beautiful. Sort of like Chrissy Snow on Three's Company with her multiple ponytails, lol, Elly's ponytails could have been fake. That was the rage in the 60s. My mother had a 'fall', as they were called.

yes, a fall, that's correct. That WAS the rage. I was disappointed to learn that MTM wore a fall on her show when she had shoulder length hair with a flip up.

Everything I read about Donna Douglas tells what a sweet person she was in real life. She was Miss West Virginia before she was picked for TBH. I'm glad she kept her morals and values.

yea; I remember my mother also had a "fall" back then.

Mary Tyler Moore wore one on her show? I never knew that!

Of course, Pearl was sporting a full wig. Not many women at her age have such a full head of hair. I have a silly habit of noticing the women who wear wigs on tv shows, and the guys with their toupees. On the Jefferson's it's more a question of who doesn't wear one....Louise, Mother Jefferson and Helen. Wigs are very big in show business.

Hollywood didn't mess her up, or she didn't let it.

Well, she basically left her kid with her parents so she could embark on a career in show business. Not all that moral or valued, is it?

A few years ago, Donna Douglas spoke to more than 300 First Baptist Church
members in nearby Rock Hill, South Carolina. She talked about choosing faith
over fear and following God by not trying to impress others but being true to
oneself. Her hair was still in blond braids, and (judging by the local newspaper
photo), she didn't look much different from Elly May on The Beverly Hillbillies.

I fail to see anything immoral or unvalued about it. Perhaps you could share your thought process?

It may have been her real hair years ago, but I don't believe it still is. I saw her at an autograph show in the early 1990s. I believe it was a wig she was wearing then. Makes sense, because when she is not wear her hair, she probably can go out in public without being noticed.
