Pantyhose Patent by a Hollywood Star, Julie Newmar – the Original Cat Woman!

July 27, 2012 under Vintage

I was surprised to find on Google (totally by accident) that an actress Julie Newmar (born in 1933, played the original cat woman) came out with a pantyhose patent in the ’70s for shaping the behind, being ultra-sheer, and ultra-snug.

At least by what I found on Google, it looks like that patent was renewed in the year 2000.  So I guess it’s still being produced.

I’d love to meet her some day!  Even though she is in her 80’s now, she seems to be quite active.  It’s possible, I am not joking… I recently met up in Vancouver with Kecia Nyman, a supermodel from the 60’s.  We even went out for some cappuccino and cakes on Granville Island.  Who’d think of that, eh?

 

 

 

Her First Patent:

Patent number: 3914799
Filing date: Sep 25, 1974
Issue date: 1975

 

Update: as it is noted below by David from United States, Julie Newmar got famous through a Broadway musical called `the silk stocking`.  Here is the vintage poster picture I found from that show.

  • David says:

    Interesting! Also coincidentally, her first Broadway appearance was in a musical called “Silk Stockings” – this is the plot summary from WikiPedia: The musical involves special envoy Nina Yaschenko, who is dispatched from the Soviet Union to rescue three foolish commissars from the pleasures of Paris. Romanced by theatrical agent Steven Canfield, she eventually comes to recognize the virtues of capitalist indulgence. Other characters include Peter Boroff, Russia’s greatest composer, who is being wooed by Peggy Dayton, America’s swimming sweetheart, to write the score for her first non-aquatic picture, a musical adaptation of War and Peace.
