A birthday tribute.
It’s Julie Newmar’s birthday today, Aug. 16, and there’s no way we were going to let that pass without some celebratory catnip.
I’ve written quite a lot about Miss Newmar over the last few years so for this salute, I’ve jumped from the written to the spoken word, with a special episode of The Batcave Podcast.
Host John S. Drew and I discussed Julie’s contributions to Batman ’66, her best moments and episodes, her unique brand of grace and wit, her career beyond Gotham and her enduring legacy. We had a wonderful time recording it and I think you’ll enjoy listening.
If you love Julie as much as we do, it’ll be your best listening today.
But that’s not all!
As I mentioned above, I’ve written quite a bit about Julie, including interviews and commentary.
