Julie Newmar Is Still The Purr-fect Catwoman

Julie Newmar was the first actress to play Catwoman on the campy 1960's Batman series. While other actresses have played the part since then, no actress has embodied Catwoman as purr-fectly as Julie Newmar. I got a huge crush on her from the first time I ever saw her. She was always incredibly sexy in that skin-tight costume. I find her so alluring and seductive. Heck, I would have jumped at the chance to assist Catwoman in her criminal pursuits. I know I'm not the only one who feels that way. Even Bruce Wayne/Batman had a thing for her. You could cut the sexual tension between these two with a knife. When I think of Catwoman, I'll always think of Julie Newmar first and foremost. Nobody could play a feline vixen quite like her. Enjoy the pictures.

Julie Newmar, Raquel Welch and Bo Derek. They were there in those early days when I first discovered what all the fuss was about when it came to females.

Phew what a scorcher - sky high legs too.

I agree Julie Newmar made a great Catwoman on the Batman TV show. I remember the show being on Wednesday and Thursday nights.

I was in 3rd grade and it is as fun and entertaining today as it was back then.

Neat post Keith.

Hey Horrorman: I totally know what you mean. All three of them were among the hot babes I fell for when I first discovered what it was that men loved about women.

Hey Planet Mondo: Thanks. Glad you liked them. I figured you would.

Keith said...

Hey Glenn. Thanks. I saw the show as a kid in reruns. It was off the air before I was born. I fell for Julie quickly. She'll always be Catwoman to me. I still love the show today. Cheers!

Yeah, Newmar is still, hands down, THE best Catwoman. No question. And it's not just that she looked the part (altho, that certainly helps!) but she also inhabited the role with that voice of hers and how she delivered her lines. Awesome.

Keith said...

Hey J.D. Thanks for the comments. I know what you mean. She definitely looked the part. She was beautiful, plus she looked hot in that costume. She also embodied Catwoman. She got the voice, mannerisms, etc. right where they should be for this role.

Planet Mondo said...

Just remembered - I used to have a View Master (remember them?) that featured a Julie Newmar episode of Batman, made everything look 3D

Keith said...

Hey. That's cool. Yeah, I had a View Master myself. I loved those things. I do remember that I had some Batman ones. Not sure if it featured Catwoman or not.

molly said...

wow she is sexy!
she makes it look so easy to look hot in such a tight outfit

Keith said...

Hey Molly. Thanks for the comments. She is definitely sexy. She looks very hot in the catsuit.

Very nice indeed. Remember her well from days in front of the tube. You definitely would not kick her out of bed for eating biscuits.

Keith said...

Hey Steve. Thanks for the comments. Glad to see you are a fan of hers too. Yeah, I definitely wouldn't have kicked her out of bed.

Hey Keith. Wondered what happened to your other blog. I finally found Sugar and spice. As much as I like Julie, Eartha Kitt to me is the best Catwoman. Yes, I am bias when it come to Eartha.

Keith said...

Hey Shell. Thanks for the comments. It was great hearing from you. Did you see what happened to my other blog? It got hacked and deleted. I'm glad you found your way here. I did love Eartha Kitt as Catwoman. I'm a big fan of hers. I hope you will definitely stop by here again.

Chi-Chi said...

Julie, Michelle, and Eartha really did justice to the Catwoman role. I think with Halle the plot was just wrong.

Keith said...

Hey Chi Chi. Thanks for the comments. I totally agree with you. Halle herself wouldn't have been a bad Catwoman. The movie was just crap.
