Beverly Hillbillies by Stephen Cox

Book Description

"Come and listen to the story 'bout a man named Jed" and the rest of the colorful Clampett family, perhaps television's most unlikely phenomenon to spring from the sixties. Hated by the critics but enthusiastically embraced by audiences around the world, to this day The Beverly Hillbillies still holds the Nielsen record for the highest rated half-hour show in the history of television. Over the years, the original television hit has inspired several highly rated network specials, an E! True Hollywood Story two-hour documentary, and even a big-screen motion picture from 20th Century Fox in 1993. Just in time to join the fortieth anniversary celebration of the classic television sitcom, The Beverly Hillbillies is filled with all the hillbilly country corn anyone could expect. Updated and expanded from the first edition, published in 1988, it is the ultimate TV book. Readers will also find hundreds of photographs, including 16 pages of color, fascinating trivia, behind-the-scenes stories, exclusive contributions from Paul Henning, the show's creator, a list of Granny's fixin's, the story of the popular theme song, Elly May's critters, Jethro's "Double-Naught" secrets, and an introduction by 93-year-old Buddy Ebsen, who played Jed Clampett in the series. Also included are a complete episode guide, cast biographies with all the inside scoop, and highlights from guest stars (John Wayne, Gloria Swanson, Sammy Davis Jr., and others).

Books By Author Stephen Cox

American Christianity by Stephen Cox American Christianity, Hardback (April 2014)

Asserting that "a church that doesn't promise new beginnings can never prosper in America," the author shows that American Christianity must be seen not as a sociological phenomenon but as the ever-changing story of individual people seeking their own connections with God, constantly reinventing their religion.

Big House by Stephen Cox Big House, Hardback (October 2009)

Tells the story of the American prison - its politics, its sex, its violence, its inability to control itself - and its idealization in American popular culture. This book investigates both the popular images of prison and the realities that lay behind them - problems of control and discipline, maintenance and reform, power and sexuality.

Incredible Mr. Don Knotts by Stephen Cox Incredible Mr. Don Knotts, Hardback (November 2008)

Cox and pop-culture critic Marhanka have joined forces to present the complete film works of comedian Don Knotts. The authors have gathered contributions from Andy Griffith, Ron Howard, Tim Conway, Ed Asner, and co-stars from Knotts' 40 feature-film career. 16-page full-color insert.
