Episode Recap

The Clampetts receive a telegram that says Louellen Aden is coming out to California. When Jed tells Jethro about this, they figure out that she wants to marry Jethro. He gets scared and runs away. Meanwhile, Elly is learning to be a secretary, but is not very good at it. She and Miss Jane go to bring Louellen to the Clampett mansion, and the family learns that she has changed into a lovely young lady. But she reveals she came to get into movies, not marry Jethro. At the bank, Drysdale tries to prove he is a good man by treating the girls to breakfast. But his anger towards the fact that Elly can't do anything gets to him. He mistakenly sees Louellen and yells at her. When Jed enters and asks why she is crying, Drysdale lies and says he was giving her a screen test because he knew she was a born actress. After they leave, Drysdale tells Jane he will give the screen test, and she better look like Steve McQueen.
