Miss Julie Newmar is in the news today. She is my favorite Catwoman and in my humble opinion by far the best of all the actresses to don the catsuit to play Batman’s purrfectly feline nemisis. Miss Newmar is touting Angelina Jolie for the role in the next sequel and states matter-of-factly, “Angelina would own the part.” This may be moot as the writers of the upcoming sequel have gone on record that they are not yet inclined to introduce Catwoman.
Miss Julie Newmar, who just turned 75, also revealed that she is suffering from an incurable neuromuscular disease called Charcot-Marie-Tooth, which slowly robs a person of the ability to walk. She walks “very s-l-o-w-l-y” and is still able to so with the aid of a gentleman’s arm when needed but without a cane.
