Good Girl Moonshine By | on September 20, 2019 Sandy Holthaus Until recently it had been years since I heard about moonshine. Moonshine was originally a slang term for spirits that were usually made without government authorization. It is a homemade whiskey that is not aged, and therefore it is clear.
- After the Revolutionary War, whiskey was among the items taxed to pay for the war.
- For this reason, poor farmers built stills in the wilderness, usually in the Appalachians, and distilled whiskey at night.
- Hence the name «moonshine.” In fact, in the TV shows I watched as a kid, moonshine was the running joke.
Remember Granny Clampett in The Beverly Hillbillies? She was excellent at touting her “medicine” in a jug marked XXX. Granny joked that her Rheumatism Medicine didn’t actually cure the aches and pains, “but it sure makes you happy you got it.” I loved it when she took a swig and started doing backflips! I was looking for more information on Granny’s recipes and found out that Granny wrote a cookbook in the 1960s.
Unfortunately, her moonshine recipe was not included. Another favorite show, the Walton’s, had the Baldwin Sisters touting their Papa’s “recipe” in nearly every episode. Of course, all the men were anxious to drink the moonshine, and all the women were horrified that the Baldwins were making “the recipe.” This show took time in our history that wasn’t really funny and brought it to life.
Whenever my family went camping when I was young my brother and I would start the goodnight “John Boy,” “Goodnight Mary Ellen” round robin at bedtime. You have to be a certain age to even understand this reference. The recent popularity of moonshine is a legal version, even during prohibition, called Good Girl Moonshine.
The flavors are amazing, and it promotes the drinking of apple cider vinegar. It is now a trend that apple cider vinegar is excellent for your health, but I have to warn you, do not attempt to drink this straight from the bottle. It is strong, and it will burn your throat almost as bad as real moonshine from a still! I started experimenting with these recipes, and I have come to love them.
I do feel a whole lot better. See Granny Clampett was right! “My grandmother is over 80 and still doesn’t need glasses. She drinks moonshine right out of the jar.
Moonshine ain’t nothin’ but sunshine that’s been cooked down a little bit’ ~ Unknown”I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live.”~ George Bernard Shaw

Southern comfort food in Clark County: Vittles and Grits restaurant opens Jan.30—A new Southern style comfort food restaurant has opened in German Twp.
Vittles and Grits, located at 3836 Lawrenceville Drive in Lawrenceville, held its opening day on Monday.Restaurant owner Erin Phillips, a nearly 25-year resident of Lawrenceville, said the eatery’s menu is inspired by the comfort food she grew up eating while living in eastern Tennessee.”Vittles” are food items that are hot and ready to eat, like soup beans and cornbread, a staple at the new restaurant, Phillips said.
Also on the menu, of course, are grits. The restaurant features grits specials every day, but also offers plain grits that patrons can be customized to suit their tastes. Breakfast is also served at Vittles and Grits all day, Phillips said. Phillips formerly worked in the pharmacy field, but she decided last year she wanted to fulfill a dream of opening a restaurant.
Phillips loves cooking and said she often cooks for loved ones at gatherings and other occasions. “The best feeling is when you cook something for someone, you see them take their first bite, and you see them smile,” she said. “It brings me joy.” Phillips runs the restaurant with her husband, Matt, and a small staff of workers.
The Southern food stop is open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. in its first week but will expand its hours to 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. starting next Monday. The restaurant’s location was formerly B and K’s Restaurant and Creamery. : Southern comfort food in Clark County: Vittles and Grits restaurant opens
What was Granny’s name in the Beverly Hillbillies?
The series rose to #1 in ratings within three weeks of its premiere, a feat that remains unmatched in television history. It stayed at #1 for 2 years. All 36 episodes of the first season, and the first 19 episodes of the second season, are in the public domain because CBS, which bought the rights to the series shortly after it was cancelled, didn’t renew their copyrights.
Those episodes have been released on home video and DVD by many low-budget labels. In many video releases of the public domain episodes, the original theme music has been replaced by generic music due to copyright issues. After the first season aired, an executive for sponsor Levi Strauss was quoted as saying that ” Donna Douglas had done more for the sale of blue jeans in one year than cowboys have done in a hundred.” When the show debuted on September 26, 1962, Jed Clampett’s fortune was given as $25 million.
After adjusting for inflation, this amount would be equivalent to $195 million as of this writing (2014). At the end of the show’s run, the fortune had climbed to $100 million, which would now be equivalent to $583 million. The series has 13 episodes that were ranked in the Top 100 Nielsen Rated Shows of all time, according to web site Zap2it.com.
Raymond Bailey was already starting to suffer from the effects of Alzheimer’s disease when the show was nearing the end of its run; it was apparent in some of his final scenes that he was not 100% healthy. Irene Ryan (Granny) once stated in an interview that she really enjoyed “whomping” Jethro. She said that anytime the script called for her to hit him, she “let him have it.” Jed Clampett was originally written as an extremely naive hick, but Buddy Ebsen would only agree to take the role if it was re-written; Jed might be uneducated, but he wasn’t foolish.
The character of Jethro was created as someone to whom to give all the “dumb” lines. During the last six seasons, as each weekly episode concluded, and Jerry Scoggins sang the closing tune, “Elly May Clampett” Donna Douglas spoke off screen, saying “Thanks, and we’ll be back, next week at this same time and same channel” just as the closing credits were nearing the final 10 seconds, and just before a commercial break started, of the next show.
Donna Douglas once said in an interview that Buddy Ebsen (Jed) and Nancy Kulp (Miss Jane) often had political debates that lasted for weeks. An agreement was made between Filmways Productions and Arnold Kirkeby to film the exterior of the Kirkeby mansion. The agreement stipulated that the grounds had to be cleaned up after filming, and the address of the Kirkeby mansion was never to be divulged to the public.
Series creator Paul Henning got the idea for the show while on a trip through the South in 1959, visiting Civil War sites with his mother-in-law. He wondered what it would be like to take a family from the rural South in the Civil War era and put them down in the middle of a modern, sophisticated community.
- Originally it was to have been set in New York, but because of cost considerations the setting was changed to Beverly Hills, CA.
- In 1970, CBS, which had earned the nickname “The Country Broadcasting System,” sought to change its image.
- In fall 1970, The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970) replaced Petticoat Junction (1963).
The following year, the network cancelled this show, Green Acres (1965), “Gomer Pyle”, “Mayberry RFD”, and “Hogan’s Heroes”. The shows were still popular with viewers and drew decent ratings in their time slots, but they didn’t appeal to the younger urban demographic that advertisers wanted.
- Pat Buttram was quoted as saying “CBS canceled every show with a tree in it, including Lassie (1954)!” Veteran character actress and voice artist Bea Benaderet was first considered for the role of Granny.
- Revisions in the character were made so that she would be more like “Mammy Yokum” in Al Capp ‘s “Li’l Abner” cartoon strip.
Benaderet was too large and “busty” to fit that image. It was reported that Benaderet herself suggested Irene Ryan for the role; by all accounts she came in and “blew everyone away” with a wonderful screen test, which still survives and is included as an extra on the DVD set.
The mansion in Beverly Hills where the Clampetts lived was actually the Kirkeby mansion in Bel Air. It was offered for sale in 2007 with an asking price of $30 million. As well as serving as animal trainer, Frank Inn actually provided the animals used on the show as Elly May Clampett’s “critters.” The show’s opening theme song, sung by Jerry Scoggins, was #44 on the charts in 1962.
Jerry’s name appears as Jethro Scoggins during the closing credits. During the first two seasons, the show was the #1 series in the country according to the Nielsen ratings. The third season was ranked #12. The fourth and fifth seasons were ranked #7, the sixth season #1, the seventh #10, the eighth #18 and the ninth #33.
- Just before the fourth season got underway, the wife of Arnold Kirkeby, who owned the actual mansion that was shown as the Clampetts’ home, apparently broke the agreement her late husband had made with Filmways Productions because the mansion’s address was leaked.
- It caused an endless stream of tourists to come to the mansion looking for Jed and Granny.
Filmways was not allowed to film the mansion’s exterior or any long shots of the mansion grounds after that. When Nancy Kulp (who was a Democrat) was running for a political office in her home state back in the 1980s, Buddy Ebsen (who was a Republican) endorsed her opponent publicly by appearing in a political ad that ran against her.
- Off the set, Buddy Ebsen and Nancy Kulp had a political argument.
- He even supported her Republican opponent, incumbent Representative Bud Shuster, going so far as to tape an ad for Shuster that labeled Kulp as “too liberal”.
- Ebsen claimed she was exploiting her celebrity status and did not know the issues.
After the death of Donna Douglas (Elly May Clampett) on January 1, 2015, Max Baer Jr. (Jethro Bodine) is the last surviving main cast member. The Clampetts’ truck was a 1921 Oldsmobile Model 46 Roadster. It was lent by Cousin Pearl when the family moved to California.
The truck body was actually found by series producer Paul Henning in a junkyard, and the studio had it built into a working truck. During the early years of the show, rumors persisted that Irene Ryan was actually younger than Donna Douglas, but wore extensive makeup as Granny. Ryan was born in 1902 and Douglas was born in 1932.
Buddy Ebsen later joked after the “Beverly Hillbillies” had ended, how could anyone believe such a thing. During the series’ run, Raymond Bailey (Mr. Drysdale) was closest to Nancy Kulp (Jane Hathaway). Even after the series was over, she was one of the only people to visit him, since he was suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease, and was pretty much a recluse.
He always referred to her as “Slim”. During Season 1, Max Baer Jr. occasionally played the dual role of Jethro and his twin sister, Jethrine Bodine. Linda Henning, daughter of series creator, Paul Henning, supplied Jethrine Bodine’s voice. Jed’s late wife’s full name was Rose Ellen Moses. Jed’s mother-in-law is Granny: Daisy May Moses.
Cousin Pearl, Jed’s first cousin, is Pearl Bodine, widow of Fred Bodine. This makes Jethro and Jethrine second cousins to Elly May. Jethro and Jethrine are first cousins once removed to Jed. Elly May is Pearl’s first cousin once removed. Jethro and Jethrine are Granny’s grandnephew/grandniece.
- Elly May is Pearl Bodine’s grandniece.
- Max Baer Jr.
- Jethro) once said he often made use of the tennis courts at Kirkeby mansion when they weren’t filming.
- Widower Jed Clampett’s late wife’s full name was Rose Ellen Moses; Granny’s (Rose Ellen’s mother and Jed’s mother-in-law) name is Daisy Moses.
- At the end of the opening credits Jed starts to point out something to the others towards camera left.
In the network broadcasts, the camera changes to show that Jed is pointing to a billboard for Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, the sponsor of the show. As the car drives past it, the theme song continues, changing to the then current slogan “K-E-Double L-O-Double Good.
- Ellogg’s best to you.” In other openings they drive by a Winston Cigarette truck with the Winston motto, “Winston tastes good like a cigarette should.” The series’ pilot episode, “The Clampetts Strike Oil,” just happened to air on Donna Douglas ‘s 30th birthday.
- Her character, Elly May Clampett, was supposed to be 17.
Buddy Ebsen ‘s character of Jed Clampett was intended to be wise if not educated. To share his wisdom after Jethro demonstrated incredible ignorance, he would say: “Someday I got to have a long talk with that boy.” From the third episode on, he said this 22 times.
- During the closing credits Granny ( Irene Ryan ) can be seen peeking between the letters as they roll by.
- Jed’s fortune of $25,000,000 in 1962 is worth $217,726,821.19 in 2021.
- On June 29, 1966, the Dutch broadcasting station NCRV aired what it claimed to be the last episode.
- With the absence of the Internet, facts like these were hard to verify by the viewers.
From 1973-74 the NCRV aired the unaired episodes in the Netherlands. Originally filmed in black and white for the first three seasons (1962-1965), the first color-filmed episode (” The Beverly Hillbillies: Admiral Jed Clampett (1965)”) was aired on September 15, 1965, and all subsequent episodes from 1965 to 1971 were filmed in color.
During its nine-season run, 274 episodes aired-106 in black-and-white, 168 in color. Milburn Drysdale’s bank was the fictitious Commerce Bank of Beverly Hills, no doubt borrowed from the actual Commerce Bank in Kansas City, Missouri, contiguously located next to Independence, Missouri which was show creator Paul Henning ‘s childhood home.
Sonny was Margaret Drysdale’s son from a previous marriage. His actual last name was never revealed and he was always known as Sonny Drysdale. Louis Nye, who played Sonny, was only eight years younger than Harriet E. MacGibbon, who played his mother. In October 1972, shortly after this show wrapped, Irene Ryan starred as Berthe in the Bob Fosse Broadway production of “Pippin.” In March 1973, she was rushed to the hospital after having what appeared to be a stroke on stage.
At the hospital, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She died April 26th. The original truck used in the series, a modified 1921 Oldsmobile Model 46, is on permanent display at the Ralph Foster Museum on the campus of The College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Missouri. The mansion is located at 750 Bel Air Drive in Los Angeles, California.
It used to contain a swimming pool in the back right of the lot, but it and the surroundings have been razed. In the original pilot episode, “The Hillbillies of Beverly Hills,” the narrator states as the cast is just entering the gate of the mansion. “Let’s take them back to their home in the Ozarks and see how this whole thing got started”.
In a later episode it is mentioned that Granny is from Tennessee. Her character was born in Tennessee and moved to the Ozarks (probably Missouri, since Paul Henning (I), the show’s creator, was from there). Although Irene Ryan ‘s character Granny is the mother-in-law to Buddy Ebsen ‘s character Jed, Ryan was in fact only six years older than Ebsen.
Based on statements made by Jed and the other characters in the show, at the start of the show Jethro was supposed to be approximately 16 years of age, which would have made Elly May approximately 14 years of age. The original title of the show was supposed to be “The Hillbillies of Beverly Hills”.
This was only seen in the original pilot episode “The Clampetts Strike Oil”. It was changed to “The Beverly Hillbillies” in the second episode. The theme song “The Ballad of Jed Clampett” originally debuted in episode two as well. In the pilot episode the song used was “Banjo Signal”. The original name and theme is difficult to find today since in syndication, it’s been changed to match the rest of the series.
The original name and theme song used in the pilot episode can be found on the official complete season one release along with an expanded pilot episode as well as the shows original sponsor endorsements. Jed and Pearl are first cousins, so Jed and Jethro would be first cousins once removed but Jethro calls him Uncle Jed.
- Pearl and Elly May have the same relationship and Elly May calls Pearl Aunt Pearl.
- During the intro to the black and white series, as the jalopy is driving thru the streets of Beverly Hills, you will notice a white car pull up behind the jalopy and maintain the same position.
- During the intro to the color series, the white car doesn’t appear.
According to Max Baer Jr., Irene Ryan was a heavy smoker and a drinker, both on and off the set. After the show was cancelled, she was offered a starring role in a proposed television series, playing a character similar to Granny. Despite her interest in the idea of doing a new series, she decided to put the project on hold so that she could fulfill her dream of performing on Broadway.
Her death in 1973 ended any chances of the TV series being produced. Long before the series started, Buddy Ebsen became friends with Max Baer Jr. ‘s family. Ebsen met Baer’s father at one of his boxing matches. Max Baer Jr. did not appear in the third- or second-to-last episodes, but Baer of course remains billed in the title credits.
Baer claimed he only auditioned for the role of Jethro for fun and never expected to get the part. Supposedly, he clinched the part largely because of his grin. The Clampett’s “fancy eatin’ table” was a pool table. They would put the bones from their food in the pockets.
During the series’ run, Jane Hathaway drove the current year’s Dodge Coronet. Starting in 1970, she drove a Dodge Challenger. They were always red convertibles. Before the show started, Max Baer Jr. was a staunch, lifelong Buddy Ebsen fan, from watching his films and television appearances. The Clampetts’ bloodhound’s name was Duke.
Nancy Kulp ‘s (Miss Jane Hathaway) middle name is Jane. It is revealed that Granny was originally from the hills of Tennessee in The Beverly Hillbillies: Elly Races Jethrine (1962); in the following episode, The Beverly Hillbillies: The Great Feud (1962), that she and her family were specifically from Napoleon, Tennessee.
We also find out the Mr. Drysdale’s family was from the same town and that his mother’s side of his family, the Bodkins, had been involved in a family feud with Granny’s family, the Moses family. Margaret Drysdale’s father’s name is Lowell Fahrquar. The names of Elly May Clampett’s two pet chimpanzees were Skipper and Bessie (Bessie being Skipper’s cousin, hence Elly May referring to her as “Cousin Bessie”).
Donna Douglas played 17-year-old Elly May Clampett; Douglas herself was actually 30 during the first season and 38 by the time the series ended. Just before the end of the credits in Season 1, Granny can be seen waving with both hands. As mentioned in Season 1, the father of Jethro Bodine and his twin sister Jethrine Bodine was called Fred Bodine.
The immensely-popular series debuted on Wednesday, September 26, 1962, on CBS at 9:00 PM EST/8:00 PM PST, just one week after The Virginian (1962) debuted on NBC (whose series ended the day after this show). This also preceded The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961), for 2 years, until it moved to 8:30 PM EST/7:30 PM PST, and it remained in the timeslot for 4 years, then, it relocated itself to the 9:00 PM EST/8:00 PM PST, for 1 year, and for the final year, at the 7:30 PM EST/6:30 PM PST.
In the pilot episode “The Clampetts Strike Oil”, Nancy Kulp is credited simply as “The Secretary” Sponsored by Kellogg’s of Battle Creek. The only one to drive the truck besides Jethro was Granny. She drove the truck in a race against Jethro in the season 7 episode “The Hot Rod Truck.” Granny won the race.
In many closeup shots of Max Baer, he’s wearing a gold chain around his neck under his shirt. Elly May had an ongoing (though arranged) dating relationship with budding film actor Dash Riprock (Larry Pennell) in the series. The name was a spoof on agent Henry Willson’s clients of the time, such as Rock Hudson, Tab Hunter, and Dirk Bogarde, and became an iconic metaphor for any handsome, bubble-headed male, akin to the proverbial dumb blonde.
Jethro followed suit in one episode, naming himself “Beef Jerky”. Perry Botkin Sr., whose compositions are heard as incidental music for the series during its two black and white seasons, used the same scores, in particularly the cue heard over the Commerce Bank sign, for the ” Murder by Contract (1958)” With the exception of chimpanzee Cousin Bessie, all of Elly May’s critters are male.
The fictitious Commerce Bank of Beverly Hills is “located” on the very real Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles. The Clampett mansion was actually owned by the Kirkeby family and is located at 750 BelAir Drive in Los Angeles. The Clampetts were from Bugtussle, Oklahoma, a real place just northeast of McAlester on Lake Eufaula.
They were NOT from a mountain area or Appalachia, but from hills that do have oil.

Let’s get some grub! ” https://www.espressoenglish.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/EE-food-drink2.mp3 Two other slang words for food are nosh and chow. All three of these words are very informal, and they are most frequently used with “Let’s get some”
What is the slang soul food?
Trying to differentiate soul food from Southern food shouldn’t be complicated. While not all Southern food is considered soul food, all soul food is definitely Southern. Soul food is an ethnic cuisine traditionally prepared and eaten by African-Americans in the Southern United States.
In the late 19th century, the Black Church became a gathering place for the Black community and impacted the development of what’s now considered soul food. Particularly in rural areas, foods like fried chicken, fried fish, sweet potato pie, red drinks, black-eyed peas and others were served during Emancipation celebrations and church gatherings.
In the 20th century, more than six million Southern Black people decided to leave the South due to poor economic conditions and intense racial oppression. From 1916 to 1970, waves of people moved, a massive relocation now called “The Great Migration.” They brought their culinary traditions with them and preparing these foods helped build new communities and served as a reminder of home.
The expression “soul food” originated in the mid-1960s, when “soul” was a common word used to describe African-American culture. At its core, soul food is down-home cooking that’s been passed down through many generations, with its roots in the rural South. In 1962, poet and civil rights activist Amiri Baraka published his essay “Soul Food,” an argument against white critics claiming that there was no African American cuisine.
That same year, Sylvia Woods opened her restaurant Sylvia’s in Harlem. Today, she is known as “the queen of Soul Food.” The staples of soul food cooking are beans, greens, cornmeal (used in cornbread, hush puppies, johnnycakes, and as a coating for fried fish), and pork.
Pork has been almost limitless in a number of uses in soul food, from seasoning vegetables and stews to dehydrating and pickling staples like pork rinds and pig feet and ears. (Of course, my smoked meat of choice is turkey—and I won’t cook chitterlings.) During the Transatlantic Slave Trade, enslaved African people were given meager food rations that were low in quality and nutritional value.
We shouldn’t have to take the brunt of a stigma that was brought to our front door. Did you know fried chicken came to America in the 1900s by Scottish immigrants? Black folks just spiced it up and paired it with our famous collard greens, Collard greens—one of the oldest members of the cabbage family—are also deep in our history and date back to prehistoric times.
The ancient Greeks grew kale and collards, although they made no distinction between them. But we did! (Fun Fact: In 2011, collards became the official vegetable of South Carolina.) I believe we have evolved, though, in the ways we use some products. Just think about it: In African-American culture, we eat Hoppin’ John, which is a combination of rice and black-eyed peas; in Latin American countries, such as the Dominican Republic and Cuba, they eat arroz congri—rice and black beans.
There are many variations of macaroni and cheese, too, from a southern version with a custard added to the noodle mixture then baked to macaroni pie, which is prominent in Jamaican and West Indian countries. In French cuisine, béchamel sauce is added to noodles and topped with herbs and bread crumbs.
All equally delicious in their own right, however each of them can stand on their own. And I believe the definition of soul food has expanded and should also come from the heart. Growing up, I remember traveling to the South with my mother. We would always stop at local restaurants. One thing I remember distinctly was fried okra that we purchased at a gas station in the outskirts of Beaufort, SC, where my late aunt Ola-Mae lived.
I always recalled eating stewed okra and tomatoes with rice, but I’d never had it fried in a popcorn chicken-like version. I thought to myself, this is weird, but then again it was native to the community and area I was in. Up north, our gas stations would serve hot dogs and slushies, which is so New York.
But in the south they served fried okra and sometimes gator bites. From that very moment as a little girl it resonated with me that you could have one ingredient that can be prepared in many different ways from state to state. When I entered my early-to-mid-teens and I started to travel the country, it was very important to my mother that I was able to explore the world and do things that she wasn’t necessarily able to do while growing up.
My first trip was to London and Paris at the age of 16, my second international trip was to Greece and Italy. Throughout these educational tours, I made it my business to try all of the local cuisines and re-create them at home. Oftentimes, I found that what I thought was native to a country was a fusion of food that we ate back in the States.
One vivid memory I have was in Athens, Greece, I ate at a Chinese restaurant and had gyro fried rice with a side of chicken wings. When I spoke with the restaurant owner, he told me that when curating their menus they had to be very conscientious of tourists and people that were in the surrounding communities but without detouring from his original heritage.
From that very moment 21 years ago, I learned the value of food appropriation and representation. It is equally important to mention the history when we curate dishes. While it’s great to go to ethnic markets, grab a whole bunch of ingredients, and throw them into a pot, you can’t call it or rename it a soup or stew without crediting where you got those ingredients from.
- For anyone to just add an ingredient thinking you’re making a dish, it’s important that you highlight the origins, feel and embrace the culture.
- Food tells stories and sometimes the history makes you appreciate a certain cuisine a little more.
- Happy cooking.and don’t forget to share a meal.

What is the African version of grits?
Papa, a stiff white porridge from Lesotho, is not that unusual. Especially if you eat grits for a living, which – apparently – many people do, here in the south. The best way to approximate Papa is by simply taking grits – the white ones – and make them a bit thicker than usual.
Why do Americans eat grits?
Origin – The dish originated with the Native American Muscogee tribe using a corn similar to hominy. American colonists learned to make the dish from the Native Americans, and it quickly became an American staple. At that time, the hominy for grits was ground on a stone mill,
- The ground hominy was passed through screens, the finer sifted material used as grit meal, and the coarser as grits.
- Three-quarters of the grits sold in the U.S.
- Are bought in the South, in an area stretching from Lower Texas to Washington, D.C.
- That is sometimes called the “grits belt.” The state of Georgia declared grits to be its official prepared food in 2002.
A similar bill was introduced in South Carolina to name it the official state food, but it did not advance. Nevertheless, South Carolina still has an entire chapter of legislation dealing exclusively with corn meal and grits. State law in South Carolina requires grits and rice meal to be enriched, similar to the requirement for flour.

Miss Ryan suffered a stroke while appearing on stage in New York six weeks ago and flew to Los Angeles for treatment on her doctor’s advice, her public relations agent, Frank Liberman, said tonight. An Aging Swinger Miss Ryan, known to millions of television viewers as the pipe‐smoking, moonshine‐making Granny in the long‐running comedy series, made her debut in a Broadway musical only last October, when she appeared as an ageing swinger in the hit show, “Pippin.”
She had been on the stage decades before, as a vaudeville headliner who played the Palace and other leading houses around the country. And she had been a star radio performer in the heyday of that medium, being heard as a regular on the Bob Hope Show and the Texaco Star Theater.
- Born Irene Noblette in El Paso, she made her debut in show business when she was 11 years old and won $3 singing “Pretty Baby” in an amateur contest at the old Valencia Theater in San Francisco.
- When she was 14, she got a job in a California stock company by lying about her age, which would have barred her under the state’s child‐labor law.
She had completed two year of high school, and never went back. After four years of stock, Miss Ryan moved into musical comedy and variety. While on the road with a show she met and married Tim Ryan, with whom she appeared in vaudeville for several years.
When vaudeville died, the Ryans went on radio. Their own program, “Tim and Irene,” became a nationwide favorite. In the late nineteen‐thirties she was heard on the Texaco Star Theater and made featured appearances on the Rudy Vallee and Bob Hope shows. In 1962, Miss Ryan created the character of Granny Campett on the “Beverly Hillbillies” show, which ran for nine seasons and is still showing reruns.
As a member of the oil‐rich hillbilly family that finds itself in unfamiliar surroundings, Miss Ryan was a mainstay of the show throughout its life. She herself became a millionaire through investments and savings. A petite woman with lively brown eyes, she stood 5 feet 2 inches tall and, during most of her career, weighed in at 95 pounds.
1981 CBS film – In 1981, Return of the Beverly Hillbillies television film, written and produced by series creator Henning, was aired on the CBS network. Irene Ryan had died in 1973, and Raymond Bailey had died in 1980. The script acknowledged Granny’s passing, but featured Imogene Coca as Granny’s mother.
- Max Baer decided against reprising the role that both started and stymied his career, so the character of Jethro Bodine was given to another actor, Ray Young.
- The film’s plot had Jed back in his old homestead in Bugtussle, having divided his massive fortune among Elly May and Jethro, both of whom stayed on the West Coast.
Jane Hathaway had become a Department of Energy agent and was seeking Granny’s “White Lightnin'” recipe to combat the energy crisis, Since Granny had gone on to “her re-ward”, it was up to Granny’s centenarian “Maw” ( Imogene Coca ) to divulge the secret brew’s ingredients.
Subplots included Jethro playing an egocentric, starlet-starved Hollywood producer, Jane and her boss ( Werner Klemperer ) having a romance, and Elly May owning a large petting zoo. The four main characters finally got together by the end of the story. Having been filmed a mere decade after the final episode of the original series, viewer consensus was that the series’ original spirit was lost to the film on many fronts, chief of which being the deaths of Ryan and Bailey and Baer’s absence, which left only three of the six original cast members available to reprise their respective roles.
Further subtracting from the familiarity was the fact that the legendary Clampett mansion (the Sumner Spaulding -designed Chartwell Mansion ) – was unavailable for a location shoot as the owners’ lease was too expensive. Henning himself admitted sheer embarrassment when the finished product aired, blaming his inability to rewrite the script due to the 1981 Writers Guild of America strike,
Is Beverly Hillbillies Based on a true story?
The real life Beverly Hillbillies
Imagine, if you will, a huge mansion in Beverly Hills. And suddenly a bunch of hillbillies moved in to it, and I do mean hillbillies. Starting to sound a bit like an idea for a television series to you? One that maybe you’ve seen and was on the air for the last 30 years in re-runs? Sure it does.
Pa, well, he was kind of the head of the clan, but he didn’t talk much. Granny pretty much ran the place. There was the little brother who was enamored with all that Hollywood had to offer and spent most of his time in trouble with the law. And let’s not forget the pretty little daughter that was something of a hillbilly herself, of course, but was quite a looker.
She was very pretty and that is how most of the trouble started. Yeah, I’m guessing that you’ve picked up on the fact that I’m talking about the famed television series The Beverly Hillbillies, but did you know that the series idea was based off an actual family who lived in Beverly Hills? They didn’t live in the house that you saw in the series, but they did live in a huge mansion.
And the pretty young daughter wasn’t named Elly Mae; her real name was Lita. The family was the McMurray’s and they moved in and set up housekeeping, much to the horror of the rest of the community. They were complete with the rust-bucket truck, the mouthy bossy mother-in-law, the drunken uncle, and all the rest that generally makes for a house of horrible neighbors.
The television series cleaned up the family considerably so the audience would love them, and we did. Jed, Granny, Jethro, Elly Mae, all became household names in America. But the originals, the McMurray’s that the series idea came from; well, they were anything but loveable.
- Why did Hollywood put up with such a rowdy dirty bunch? Well, because they pretty much had to.
- You see, It’s a Little Known Fact that one of Hollywood’s greatest performers and richest men had a short one night tryst with the daughter Lita, who was an extra on the set of one of his movies.
- Three months later it was learned that she was pregnant.
That’s when the star learned two things for the first time. One, he was about to be a father, and two, Lita was only 16 and underage. The star tried to get out of it with a bribe of nearly $1 million dollars, rather than go to jail for statutory rape, but the girl’s mother insisted on him doing the honorable thing, and sure enough he did.
- The marriage only lasted two years, but during that time, The Beverly Hillbillies were a reality, right down to the cranky banker who lived next door.
- Later, the wild tales of that family became the idea for the famed television series.
- The only thing left out of the series was the star himself, the man that married little Elly Mae’s real life inspiration, Lita, and that man was Charlie Chaplin.

What happens if Granny sees you?
Behavior – Granny will always spawn in the Master Bedroom, in the first floor, at the start of the game and of each day. From there, she will wander around the house, looking for the Player, always carrying her bat with her. If a noise is made, she will come to that noise’s location, inspect it for a few instants and will go back to her normal walking around Grandpa ‘s House.
- And if she sees the Player, she will run after them until she has lost them or knocked them out with her well-known bat.
- In this new game, Granny is now able to do a few activities and interact with furniture.
- Instead of just opening and closing doors, she can now interact with the Piano, the Sink, the Dirty Plate, or the Shower’s Doors.
This wasn’t the case in the previous game. She also sometimes responds to Slendrina’s Child ‘s calling. Granny’s eyes will turn red if her great grandson, Slendrina’s Child is killed using the Shotgun or Stun Gun while she is alive. She and Grandpa will enter this “red eyes mode” in response to Slendrina ‘s screams, which will make both of them constantly aware of the Player ‘s location, going after them until they have been knocked out, or until the heartbeat effect that can be heard stops.
When Granny catches the Player, she will make a screaming sound effect accompanied with a zoom on her face and will hit the Player on the head, making them fall down to the floor, knocking them out and sending them to the next day, or Game Over if they are already on their last day. Granny is not able to open the Security Room ‘s door by herself, and will never visit it on her own.
She will, however, do this if noise is made in this room, or if she sees the Player in it. She and Grandpa are also unable to climb up the ladder and access the Attic, which makes this zone a safe place from both of them. She and Grandpa are also unable to crouch and enter crawlspaces, such as the Vent, and are also unable to hear certain sounds, such as opening doors, drawers, cabinets, the Movable Bookshelf sliding, any item dropped in a “silent” piece of furniture, or any noise made in the Attic.
Finally, note that Granny isn’t able to pick up any item. If Granny is running after the Player and that they hide in the Bathroom, inside the Shower, and have closed the door behind them, they are normally presumably safe. However, this room is an exception, as Granny will sometimes “sense” the Player inside the Shower and will open it as if she knew that they were inside.
This can often result in a Knockout, unless you are quick enough to close the Shower’s Doors without getting seen, to which she will respond by giving up on looking after you, shortly after.
