Newmar Memorabilia at the Smithsonian

Some aspects of the old Batman show were hysterical, and some are now...historical. Julie donated an original Catwoman costume to the Smithsonian during a "Legendary Ladies" event that also included Rose Marie, Carol Channing, Tippi Hedren, Florence Henderson and June Lockhart.
Tippi would've donated her costume from "The Birds" but she wasn't exactly first in the pecking order for it. Most of it is probably still in nests throughout Los Angeles. She did offer the museum her prized Hitchcock film scripts, and the other stars donated some amazing and interesting items, too. Planning a trip to Washington?
