    So, from this thread I can only draw one conclusion (which I've always kind of known, anyway) - the Dallas producers were misogynistic pigs, who didn't understand how much pull their actresses had in terms of audience and viewer ratings, and these two women were unjustly pitted against one another. :NI:

    I personally didn't mind Donna's performance. I've always understood Barbara was unwell, so it made more sense to me that Miss Ellie be re-cast, rather than disappear into the abyss until Barbara's return. This discussion does make me wonder what kind of chemistry there would have been had Donna still been Miss Ellie when fake-Jock Wes Parmalee arrived at Southfork...
