    She’s purrrrrfect! I remembered the first time I saw her on TV, when she played Catwoman. =)

      Now, I don’t remember the TV series, but is that “purrrrfect” a signature line of hers?

        Yes, it was her signature line! =)
        Btw, this was the campy-but-fun TV series that starred Adam West and Burt Ward. I believe Tallulah Bankhead was also cast there as the Black Widow.

      I keep looking at that picture… and that definitely is a live animal. Poise and bravery.

      There’s some story of Gloria Swanson working with a leopard (or lion) on a silent film with Cecil B. DeMille… I’ll have to get my facts straight, but I think it was shot before it could take a swipe at her…

    She never did things by halves.
