Julie Newmar Invented Three Legged Pantyhose!

The original Catwoman, Julie Newmar, has managed to retain her Amazonian beauty. The 5’11” actress appeared at the Comikaze convention – she’s 81 and as striking as when she starred on Broadway in the 50’s. She still goes out to an occasional Hollywood party with her friends. Here’s an amusing tidbit: Back in the early 80’s we happened to be in a thrift shop and noticed a large pile of pantyhose in boxes with Julie’s photo oh them. We were told she invented a special kind of hose and patented her idea but the invention was a flop. When we looked at the hose we were shocked to see they had THREE legs – Julie figured if you got a run you could use the spare leg. Apparently not many women wanted an extra hosiery leg wrapped around their hips so they didn’t sell. Too bad we weren’t smart enough to buy one and save it as memorabilia.
