Biography

Though she earned a Tony for a turn on Broadway in 1961's "The Marriage-Go-Round," actress Julie Newmar's career was largely defined by her recurring role as the slinky Catwoman on the iconic 1960s cult series, "Batman" (ABC, 1966-68). Prior to her appearances in the role, she had been a staple of Hollywood musicals and stage productions, including "Li'l Abner" (1959), but her seductive turn as Catwoman - and, most notably, her form-fitting suit, which she designed herself - made her the object of many young male viewer's ardor. Newmar never quite achieved the same degree of fame after "Batman," though she did become a savvy real estate investor in the 1980s. However, Catwoman remained her bread and butter well into her later years, a position that she appeared to embrace whole-heartedly.
