Catwoman - Julie Newmar - in Playboy!

Not sure where this really fits, so mods please move if deemed necessary Wink

In the current issue of Playboy (Oct. 08) you can see Julie sans catsuit on page 17 Smiley

Here's a direct quote (my bolding though):

Quote:
Chalk up Batman's current popularity to Frank Miller, Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan, but let's not write off the campy 1960s TV show.  Doing so would risk writing off our dear friend Julie Newmar, the original Catwoman.  She recently reminded us of an unpublished pictorial she posed for in the early 1970s.  We should have peeked under that catsuit years ago.


I can't post the picture for obvious reasons.  It is what I would call a tasteful nude...nice to see some of our bat-friends are still popular Smiley

Update: Ha, how's THAT for my 200th post Wink
  

Cat: I could give you more happiness than anyone in the world.
Bat: How?
Cat: By being your partner in life, it's me and you against the world.
Bat: What about Robin?
Cat: Hmm..I know, we'll kill him.

Julie also had a brief pictorial in the May 1968 Playboy -- a few photos got out when she took a dive into a pool while filming McKenna's Gold and her Indian Sqaw top came off in the pool.  Just a few topless shots.  The additional Bat trivia about that issue is that the cover girl, the playmate of the month for that issue, was also on Batman in a lesser hench-person role, although I forget who.  It's listed on Sutton's site or another site, I believe.

Actually she was Playmate Of The Year (POTM in Sep. '67) (rarely does the Playmate Of The Month grace the cover).  That would be Angela Dorian (real name: Victoria Vetri) as Florence of Arabia in "I'll Be A Mummy's Uncle".  BTW, just another of the hundreds (it seems) of people to be in Batman and Star Trek - she played Isis...Gary Seven's cat (she was the cat in human form) Smiley

That's the ticket!  I dug out my old issue here.  Also, of note, in that issue is an OUTSTANDING article on a con man named "Neversweat".  It's not Batman related, but it's an outstanding read.  For those of  you who actually read the articles...  Smiley

And, of course, for those of you who don't know, there is always a "hidden" playboy bunny somewhere on the cover of all Playboys.  I don't know how far back this tradition goes, but it's on this one from the '60's.  If you can't find it, it's on the inside snippet of the picture on the table of contents.

There have been issues where the bunny isn't present on the cover.

By the way, the picture of Julie is kinda small and isn't overly revealing. I wonder if they'll bring out the whole pictorial?

Curse them for using the word "campy", that's the same as calling Hugh Hefner a degenerate.

A friend of ours, Lynda was one of those rarities by appearing on the cover and as the Playmate of the month back in '82.

On another note, I always managed to find the bunny, but then again it has been about 20 years since I ever bothered to check out the magazine.

Hi,

Julie was in two pictorials for Playboy that I know of.  There were the pics of her on the set of "McKenna's Gold that show her diving into the swimming hole and a couple of other shots from the movie.  A little later, Playboy photographers managed to get into the studio in London where she was shooting "Monsieur Lecoq" with Zero Mostel.  They came away with some good pictures of Julie in a bubble bath with Zero Mostel holding each of her legs.  They show a back nude shot of a stagehand toweling her off after the bubble bath scene.

Clearly, Hugh Hefner loves Julie and she is named as one of the 200 sexiest women of all time in his magazine.  If he had some guts (or his daughter, or whoever runs his magazine nowadays) they could run a classy pictorial of her TODAY to show her truly timeless beauty.

Yeah, it used to be that way but more recently there have been a few issues without the hidden bunny. It was always a fun challenge to look for them.In fact, I would thoroughly examine every picture inside and out...for hidden bunnies, of course.  Smiley
