It was so wonderful being on "Batman" (1966) because you could be nasty and mean, and in the `50S women could never--unless you were some `B` picture actress--be mean, bad, and nasty. It was so satisfying; I can`t tell you how satisfying it was.

 

[on how she got her most famous role, Catwoman on "Batman" (1966)] I had lived in New York at the time on Beekman Place. I remember it was a weekend, Friday or Saturday, and my brother had come down from Harvard with five or six of his friends, and we were all sitting around the sofa, just chatting away, when the phone rang. I got up and answered it, and it was this agent or someone in Hollywood, who said, "Miss Newmar, would you like to play Catwoman on the `Batman` series? They are casting it out here." I was insulted because he said, "It starts Monday." I said, "What is this?" That`s how television is done: they never know what they are doing until yesterday. Well, my brother leaped off the sofa. I mean he physically levitated and said, " `Batman`! That`s the favorite show at Harvard. We all quit our classes and quit our studies and run into the TV room and watch this show." I said, "They want me to play Catwoman." He said, "Do it!" So, I said, "OK, I`ll do it."

 

In November 2004, the former "Catwoman" had a different type of cat fight on her hands. Her next-door neighbor, actor James Belushi, sued her for $4 million alleging harassment and defamation of character. Their openly hostile neighborhood feud has been supposedly going on for years. Newmar, an avid community advocate who once fought restrictions against noisy leaf-blowers, once threw an egg at Belushi's house in retaliation for a noisy air conditioner. The suit includes vandalism and spying.

 

Her son John is deaf and has Downs Syndrome.

JsW Lazenby - I did NOT date Julie Newmar over Christmas, 1951, but I did "turn down" two dates then of "the pretty girl next door" who turned out to be Julie. Who is more a 10? Especially today! (6 years ago)
