Julie Newmar, We Salute You! Have a Purrrrfect Halloween!

Well folks, Cat Month has come to it's tail end...but every month is cat month in my heart!
What a better way to celebrate Halloween than to honor the Original and quintessential (at least in my book) Cat Woman... the lovely and sublime Julie Newmar. Yes, she is by far my favorite Cat Woman (and hubby's too, LOL). When Batman reruns were being aired on our local network, we were psyched. Especially when it was a Cat Woman episode. She was Batman's one true love after all!


I happen chanced upon Julie in a 1963 pre-Cat Woman role as the devine "Miss Devlin" in The Twilight Zone episode “Of Late I Think of Cliffordville”. A must see, if you can Netflix or YouTube it. We were on a Julie Newmar kick after that, and watched DVD's of anything she was in. It's clear she was born to wear those headbands with little cat ears, or devil horns!

Newmar also is an avid gardener and even has a rose named after her. She has pix of her gorgeous lush California garden on her web site. Gotta see it. Thanks Julie, for defining the cat suit and your unmistakable cattitude! And to the Cats, and Cat lovers everywhere, we salute you with paws n' claws!

Happy Halloween Everyone!

What a hoot! I have to go see her gardens now. I remember how she had problems with a famous neighbor, was it Jim Belushi?? Wonder if he was letting his dogs pee on her rose bushes!! Oh boy look where I just took your post about an elegant actress. Must be the Halloween naughtiness in the air! Happy Halloween! Pam
