Irene Ryan

I remember reading how they aged her for the part. Have they uglied her up because she was such a young good looking woman.

 

She was born in 1902. The Hillbillies started in 1962. She was 60. They didn't have to age her. She was the right age to be Ellie's grandmother.

 

There's so much dumb information out there on the internet.

Red is correct!  She was a consummate actress and between her talent and the makeup, she made “Granny”  an icon!

That bottom picture is Irene Hervey, who starred in among other things, My Three Sons. Take a close look at the signature. She also didn’t have Irene Ryan’s bulbous nose.

Good catch, I never thought to look at the autograph!
