Barbie lawsuit

The actress who played Elly May Clampett on ``The Beverly Hillbillies'' T-V show is suing toy maker Mattel.
77-year-old Donna Douglas claims the company used her name and likeness for a Barbie doll without her authorization.
Douglas says packaging for the ``Elly May'' Barbie doll features a photo of her in-character, but that she never gave Mattel permission to use her name to promote sales of its doll.
