The Gloria Swanson Story
AIRED:
Jethro gets a job as a paperboy, and on the papers he delivers, the Clampetts see that one of their favorite silent movie stars, Gloria Swanson, is auctioning her belongings and selling her house. The clan thinks that she has fallen on hard times, and since they are huge fans, they decide to help. They visit her home and meet her. But what the Clampetts don’t know is that she wants to do this. Gloria is doing extremely well, only selling her home and belongings to donate the money to the Actors’ Relief Fund, while her home is part of a golf course deal, and she herself is moving back East. To help their idol out, the Clampetts decide to make a new silent movie with Gloria in it. Passion’s Plaything premieres at the Bijou Theatre in Bugtussle, where she is and forever will be the Queen of the Movies.moreless
