Julie Newmar…Then and Now (And How!)

argumentative research paper If you are a male, which I am… if you grew up in the 60’s, which I did… and if you had a pulse, you were at some point in your adolescence in love with Julie Newmar. I would feel silly and extremely self-conscious confessing to all of you that she was, in fact, my first love interest if it weren’t for the fact that I am only one of a whole generation of prepubescent boys who felt the same way.

dissertation proposal health care management Just in case you’ve been living under a pop culture rock for the past 45 years, Julie Newmar is the one who created the Catwoman role in the original “Batman” series. Even though two other actresses went on to play the role in that particular series (Lee Meriwether and Eartha Kitt), two more on the big screen (Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry), and also Anne Hathaway who is going to give it a shot in the upcoming Batman film, “The Dark Knight Rises”, no one can fill that Cat Suit the way Julie Newmar did (both literally and figuratively). write essay english I actually had the extreme honor and privilege to have a real life encounter with the woman of my childhood dreams. In 1985, I was working at the Wilshire Theatre in Beverly Hills during a play which starred the late Rex Harrison and Claudette Colbert. Every night of the show there were always several celebrities in attendance so it was never that big of deal to see the likes of Frank Sinatra, Joan Rivers, Carol Channing, Dudley Moore or Bill Murray in the lobby (ok, it was a big deal, and pretty cool too, but you get the point). Then one night a coworker of mine pointed in the direction of the main entrance and said, “Isn’t that the lady that was in Batman?” I turned to look and to my amazement, it was. To be totally honest, that was the last coherent moment I had for several minutes due to the star struck coma I had just gone into. I do remember thinking to myself that I would never have the opportunity to talk to her again so I needed to at least go up to her and say “hi”.

buy sql server 2012 enterprise I am an extremely shy person in public, so for me to even contemplate walking up to a total stranger in this kind of situation and to actually say something is unheard of. But I did. I probably made a total fool of myself, but I told her that when I was young I absolutely adored her and how Batman was my favorite show and blah, blah, blah… all the same things that I’m sure she hears anytime she goes anywhere. She was very kind, accommodating and non-dismissive (which is more than I probably would have been in her position). She said, “My goodness that was a lifetime ago, you are so sweet to say those things”…I then floated away on a cloud of infatuated stupidity (in which I think I’m still kind of on actually). cheap essay service Fast forward 27 years… Julie Newmar is now 78 years old… and you know what?… She’s still an inspiration to me! Besides a very long and illustrious career that includes little things such as a Tony award, several Broadway shows and many, many feature films and popular TV shows… the older she gets the more she seems to begin living. Ms. Newmar became a first time mother in her late 40’s (yes you read that right), began modeling in her 60’s and became a writer in her 70’s. She has recently written a book called “The Conscious Catwoman Explains Life on Earth”, and also some very inspiring blogs and articles. These writings talk about things such as aging gracefully (which she has), health, politics, and just some great insight from a life lived in show business. I don’t know about you, but if I can live the rest of my life with that kind of energy, passion and zest for accomplishment, I’ll feel pretty good about becoming an old guy (instead of the lazy lump I currently am).

leukemia argumentative paper Although in my mind I will always be that little boy with a giant crush and that villainous woman with the painted on cat suit will always be on the receiving end of that particular emotion… I’m really glad that the adult me has just as fond of memories of Julie Newmar… but now in a much more grown up way.
