The Bat Phone




Mondays are always unpredictable. After a weekend of music and especially, this last weekend, Jimmy Buffett Night and all; I normally make my way into town and get a little business done which includes going to the Lariat and telling Bonnie(bookkeeper and writer of checks) who worked on stage over the weekend. There is a phone behind the bar that goes directly to the office upstairs and I usually call Gene and Bonnie on what we call THE BAT PHONE!
Today I did the usual routine and Leeper mentioned the Bat Phone and we started talking about the old TV series and some of the HOT women that were on the show. My favorite was Cat woman and Leeper's was Batgirl but we couldn't remember the actresses' names. Thanks to the Internet, I found them. Cat woman was played by Julie Newmar and Bat girl was played by Yvonne Craig. Of course Lyndsey Wagner and Linda Carter came up in the conversation also. Simple times for simple minds....

Actually, at least one other actress played Cat Woman on TV. Eartha Kitt. There may have been others.

Quite right, Dickie Stew! And in that same vein, Lee Meriweather palyed her in the 1966 spinoff movie of Batman. I always thought it was cool that she drove her cat-themed car, the Cat-illac! Prrrrr!
In modern times, who can forget Halle Berry's portrayal of Catwoman. Whoa, she really fit that costume well. Double Prrrrr!!
Anybody notice the small (alomst cameo) bits with Catwoman in The Dark Knight? I worn-out old madame. Creepy.
