The Beverly Hillbillies (Season 1 – Ep. 1) The Clampetts Str

…The Clampetts Strike Oil You wanted it, you have got it! This is the Quite 1st Beverly Hillbillies episode! I have to admit, the way the Pub Domain music was slapped onto this 1 is rather poor as you can hear the original theme music cut into it! This was 1st aired September 26th 1962

    In case you didn’t know, the good-looking young man named “Jeff Taylor” who appears in Mr. Drysdale’s first scene is Robert Osborne from TCM!

    4:54…that guy that Elly May caught is hot! I don’t get why they pair Elly with all these ugly or average men later on in the episodes. This guy is better looking!

    A piece of cultural Americana. Thanks Ian, such a timeless piece of comedy.

    I like the gasps from the audience when the camera panned out from the cabin.

    I believe everything I read on Wikipedia. In fact, sometimes I hear something and don’t believe it. So I add it to a Wikipedia article. Then I can read it there and believe it.

    anyone notice a very young future TCM host Robert Osborne as Taylor , one of Drysdales assistants , look at the 20:58 mark ,he has a few lines and wow how young and handsome .. he was 30 in 1962
