The Explanation
(for those who require one)

And, of course, that is what all of this is -- all of this: the one song, ever changing, ever reincarnated, that speaks somehow from and to and for that which is ineffable within us and without us, that is both prayer and deliverance, folly and wisdom, that inspires us to dance or smile or simply to go on, senselessly, incomprehensibly, beatifically, in the face of mortality and the truth that our lives are more ill-writ, ill-rhymed and fleeting than any song, except perhaps those songs -- that song, endlesly reincarnated -- born of that truth, be it the moon and June of that truth, or the wordless blue moan, or the rotgut or the elegant poetry of it. That nameless black-hulled ship of Ulysses, that long black train, that Terraplane, that mystery train, that Rocket '88', that Buick 6 -- same journey, same miracle, same end and endlessness."

Wow. Now that's a real "hourglass" figure for you.

If Julie Newmar merely possessed stunning physical assets, she would be something; thankfully, there's much more to her than that. I've met and interviewed her, and she's bright and charming. If Hollywood could have seen those qualities in addition to her figure and legs, she might have had a more substantial film career.

Julie's now in her mid-seventies, but she's still active and attractive. You can follow her engaging thoughts on a variety of topics at http://www.julienewmarwrites.com/

I'd always thought there was a little more to Julie Newmar besides the obvious..my Mom used to like her show with Bob Cummings,My Living Doll,where she played the beautiful Robot..I'd always feel sorry for her when she wouldn't function properly and Bob would have to lay her on the table and open up her back and fix her gears! :o( :o))

An hourglass figure - and early in the day too!

It was an unfortunate fact of Hollywood that all too many executives though with the brain that resided below the belt rather than the one that resided above the shoulders when it came to women who look like Julie Newmar. And of course, once she got typecast even when new executives and the new system of making movies came into the mix it was nearly impossible to break out. Happened to too many of the women who came into the business at the time she did.
