Now you can POUNCE on the CATWOMAN

Well well. Who's groggy, with her legs slightly apart?

Was the Catwoman slipped a drug by Bill Cosby? Is she about to be groped by Al Franken, Jeffry Tambor, George H.W. Bush, Donald Trump, or any other "special bat villains?" No, no, no, this bit of wishful fantasy comes to us from the talented, inky fingers of Alex Ross, who is merely expressing wishful thinking. PS, if you notice, Catwoman is not sound asleep, she's only talking to somebody on the phone who is apparently boring her into a cat-nap. Alex Ross is a DC comics artist, and he's offering 21 x 21 limited edition canvas versions of this delightful piece...SIGNED by both himself and JULIE. The action takes place at the appropriately titled AMAZING GALLERY: Amazing Gallery, The Grand Canal Shoppes, 3377 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Suite 2245, Las Vegas, NV 89109. DECEMBER 9th 4-6pm. RSV required. Space is limited. Bring money. "Special appearance by the Batmobile" which is NOT going to EVER be serviced by the questionable grease monkeys at the LAcarGUY Body Shop in Santa Monica.

Paws and Applause - a Julie CatCon Clip

Here's Julie, about two minutes into this three minute clip posted by "THE ELLEN SHOW."

Ellen Degeneres couldn't make it to the cat convention, to check out the new products, but as a cat owner (three felines) and an investor in products available at PetSmart, she wanted to check it out.

Enter a flamboyant assistant, Andy Zenor, dressed up and ready to make a fuss. He went from fuss to non-plussed when he found Julie, the original Catwoman herself.

Andy quickly went from hunter to prey, as the Catwoman stalked him with her wicked sense of fun!

Memorable Parties!

There were some fun moments in the offbeat cult films "Hysterical" and "The Maltese Bippy."

From the looks of these two pictures, there was even more fun at the press parties! Cropped out on the left was Troy Donahue, who turned up at the "Hysterical" proceedings. I'm not sure who was at "The Maltese Bippy" party. I met Fritz Weaver a few years ago, and mentioned the film

He smiled, not in recalling the film or Rowan and Martin, but in remembering the home-made brownies Julie brought to the set! "You bet your sweet bippy!"

Bloomin' Beautiful. A view of the garden

In many parts of the country, the summer clothes are being put in storage. People are ready to take The Fall. The leaves will soon be dropping off the trees.

But in California, there's always flowers in bloom, especially in Julie's garden.

Back in New York, where Julie once had an apartment, the New Yawk phrase for telling a bunch of people to get lost is: "Be Gone, Yez."

In laid back California, everyone's welcome to take a look at the Begonias!

The Julie Newmar Rose and ROSE MARIE

It's never too late. Rose Marie just opened her Twitter account. Rose Marie rivals Milton Berle for having the longest show-biz career. At 94, she's the subject of a new documentary film. She's promoting it on Twitter, along with photos from her career and her private photo albums. Like this shot with Julie!

Maybe she'll get a rose named after her, like Julie. And yes, Rose likes Julie! Both were born in August (Rose on August 15th, Julie on August 16th).

On this photo, taken a few years ago: "Wish I could say I was sitting down in this pic...used to think I was tall - maybe 'cause I was next to Morey so much!"

Enjoy Your Moment, Enjoy Your Item. And don't dupe on eBay

The Internet.

Anything goes. People download "free" movies, TV shows, porn, and PDF/ePub copies of books.

People hoist things to YouTube and "monetize" them, even if it's somebody else's copyrighted material.

Let's have a bit of civility.

When Julie signs a picture, she's not entering into a business partnership. As in, "now you can scan this and sell copies."

She could sell "copies" on eBay and donate all the money to charity. So why are YOU copying and keeping all the money?

In a word DON'T.

Because it's RUDE. And you didn't tell her, "guess what, Julie, I'm gonna copy this photo because, er, uh, I want to make back the admission price for getting into Comic Con. And I'd like to make back the money I paid to meet you..."

Let's be a little more respectful and a lot less ridiculous.

PS, the items DO get removed from eBay as they are against eBay policy on counterfeit material and material being sold without licensing or permission.

That includes THIS:

Going back many years, people have routinely asked Julie to pose for a photo. Free. Even if it meant holding up the line. The reason? A souvenir. The reason shouldn't be to go into the dupe photo business. You didn't get a signed model release, after all. This was a friendly moment, not a business transaction.

So again, and this is coming not from Julie but from those who deal with the business end of things, please enjoy your moment. Enjoy the generosity of being able to take a photo at no charge. Enjoy your photo. If you need to sell it at some point, sell the original. Duping photos is just not nice or ethical. Thank you for your understanding.

Julie Newmar's comments on ADAM WEST

Julie's phone was ringing almost constantly, after the news of Adam West's passing.

She told the Daily News: “I will miss him in the physical world and savor him always in the world of imagination and creativity.”

And for Entertainment Tonight:

"Adam set the bar so high for portraying the role of Batman. He was wonderful, spot on, with a twinkle in his eye. He had it all -- looks, charm, intelligence, I could go on and on."

"In conversation, he was very animated and once told me that Batman was the father that everyone wanted! I never thought of it that way! He had a great way of playing that 'tongue-in-cheek' nature in so much of the dialogue."

She last saw Adam about a month ago, and he seemed in good health.

"If I had to describe him in a word or two, they would be 'stellar' and 'exemplar,' qualities that we want to encourage in ourselves and in young people."
