Julie joins the TV PARTY

Julie, Yvonne Craig and I were at the Chicago Museum of Broadcasting some years back, and I remember the curator, young Cary O'Dell telling me he was pretty nervous. He was moderating the panel, which featured a discussion on 60's TV in general, and the women of "Batman" in particular. I was the "expert" (author of "Sweethearts of 60's TV") but Julie and Yvonne were the attractions!

You can see that event if you're at the museum. It's preserved on tape. Cary's moved on to the Library of Congress, where he asked me to provide some articles, and he's been writing for TV Party. His most recent subject? Julie! Not just her work on "Batman," but her other great achievements on such a wide variety of TV shows.

Thanks, Cary, it's nice to know that Julie made such an indelible impression. Long after you got a chance to meet her in person, here she is, immortalized over at TV Party. Fads, fallacies, drag camp and arch "art" projects fade away almost instantly, but the quality work on "Twilight Zone," "Route 66," "Star Trek," "Batman," and so many other TV shows she's done, as well as films, continues to delight old fans and bring in new ones. It's remarkable that "7 Brides for 7 Brothers" which some might think an "old fashioned" musical, is still zipping along in the world of "streaming" Internet entertainment, while only a small cult ponder "serious" esoterica and exchange mutterings with effete critics and "outsider" journalists.

Honestly, most of us would rather PARTY...and TVPARTY is certainly a place to celebrate, and stay young at heart. Thanks, Cary, s scholar, and an unpretentious gentleman.

"Return of the Caped Crusaders" is HERE

The animated Batman '66 movie "Return of the Caped Crusaders" is now available via digital stream. It features the original TV voices of BATMAN, ROBIN and CATWOJAN: Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie.

The deluxe edition DVD arrives on November 1, 2016.

Reviews have been ecstatic, especially on how Julie sounds the same as ever...vital, alluring and seductive. She hasn't forgotten that what made her a star are the real men who bought her cheesecake photos, watched her stupefy Dogwatch USA and roar down "Route 66," and dazzle Broadway in a wicked (not camp) Tony-award winning show.

You're never too old to enjoy a good animated cartoon! And it looks like a second feature will be in production soon!

Julie Newmar Talks Trash to Joe Pesci

Here's a quick little clip from HALF NELSON. https://youtu.be/0uEcxJeM5Sg Julie Newmar with a Russian wolfhound, sees detective Joe Pesci picking and seeming to picnic through the trash.

Summer's Blooming in Julie's Garden

Ah, the serenity and beauty of nature.

Julie's garden is a tour destination for horticulturists. Charity tours of Brentwood's most delightful home gardens raise money and lower blood pressure!

Julie's had varieties of flowers named after her, including an exquisite and unique rose.

You can go on a slide-tour via YouTube. And yes, the intricate and at times erotic patterns of the budding flowers are nicely spiced with some Photoshop hybrids featuring the lady herself.


Julie to paws for CATCON, Saturday afternoon June 25th

It had to happen: a CATCON convention for cat lovers.

The original CATWOMAN will BE there, but only for a few hours.

Saturday June 25th (11:00am - 1:00pm) Julie will be signing copies of her "Conscious Catwoman" book, and her brother John Newmeyer will be signing his new one, "The Mediterranean Universe."

Billed as "The Convention with Catittude," the event takes place June 25/26 at The Reef in downtown L.A.

Yes, there have been cat shows for years and years. I remember seeing Julie's "Marriage-go-Round" co-star James Mason at the big cat show in New York years ago. BUT...there's nothing quite like CATCON.

Along with Julie, the fun events include:

The Furrocious Fashion Face Off Contest (cosplay cater), a cat adoption area so you can take home a tabby, Animal Planet's Escape Room (where humans can pretend to be cats, and play with giant cat toys), a video CatFest, a seminar on "How I Met My Cat" (featuring meowing Mariel Hemingway), and more.
