When appearing on the Beverly Hillbillies, Joi got to sing. And could she ever. As for being better looking than Donna Douglas, well that`s debatable....very.

Joi played Lester Flatt`s wife on The Beverly Hillbillies TV show.

Delta1Aug 3, 2008

Was she married to Bluegrass musician, Lester Flatt?

JackbackMar 11, 2008

So Joi wasn`t the best actress, and as she got older increasingly took on a wierd sense of desperation. But she was inarguably stunning! She makes an excellent argument for human cloning and the reason for drool.

Mike TAug 19, 2007

She was born 6 Apr 1929 in Salt Lake City, UT. Her claim to fame was appearing in movies in the skimpiest allowed costumes. Despite this, no nude photos of her are known to exist. Please demonstrate that I`m wrong about the pics! She died of br**st cancer 7 Aug 1972, Santa Monica, CA.
