The honor comes from the Southern California Motion Picture Council via their 78th Annual “Holiday Ball” at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City (December 16th). For the 200 guests in attendance: a gourmet dinner buffet and stage show...and two legendary stars!
The Southern California Motion Picture Council was founded in 1936, and they've issued "Golden Halo" awards for the best in movies, television, stage plays, and the performing arts.
As most know, if "My Living Doll" hasn't been thrown up against powerhouse NBC Western "Bonanza," it probably would've been renewed for another season or two. Probably the other factor that caused CBS to pull the robot's plug was what to do for a co-star. By mutual consent, Bob Cummings had turned out to be a liability, but nobody was sure Jack Mullaney was the replacement. He wasn't a star name, and only had a few episodes to prove himself. Instead of starting a new season with Jack, or adding someone else, CBS had plenty of other sitcoms ready and waiting.
Check Julie's interview about the show in FILMFAX #135.
Come and get some dual-signature photos signed by both ADAM WEST and JULIE NEWMAR.
And "never say NEVER AGAIN..." they will be joined by the mighty mites, Robin and Batgirl. Yes, coming out of retirement yet again, Burt Ward and Yvonne Craig will once more wield pens and THWAPP some autographs.
Also at the event, such fun names as Craig Yoe, Bob Eggleton, James Biggie, Zeke Savory, Randall Trang, and Renee Wittestatter. (Those ARE fun names!)
Guaranteed to be just a tad different from other Comic Cons, the RICC offers "Kids Con," an area for 10 and unders to enjoy story time, drawing, face painting and even magic lightsaber training, and "Get MARRIED at Rhode Island Comic Con...100% Legal!"
For more info on this, and a full list of the other guests at the event, just go over to RICOMICCON.COM.
This could apply to almost every "bobble head" doll ever made. The only person with a giant head that actuallly wobbles back and forth is Jay Leno. Otherwise, who really needs such a peculiar caricature sitting on a shelf or on a desk, goonishly jittering any time the wind blows?
In the case of Julie, there isn't much of a likeness, is there? Looks more like Brett or Edna...
As some of you may know, America's foremost actress of a bygone era (1850's to 1870's approximately) is an integral part of Julie's family tree. Take a look below. When Charlotte was asked for her autograph, she often did more than sign her name. She offered words of wisdom.
This scrap of faded paper, with her signature, starts off with this unusual thought:
"All hoods make not monks."
....and the most realistic statuette yet...
Fans of Rhoda the Robot could buy a second one of these, and modify it a bit...just get a white sheet and stencil "AF-709" on it and wrap it around Julie from the neck down. Thene make sure to get some flesh-colored enamel paint and smooth the eyebrows. This model of Catwoman follow's Julie's creative eyebrow design, which made our favorite feline felon look even more dangerously feral! Nice detail on this item, huh?
