She made an even bigger impression as a sexy and strong-willed Swede in The Marriage-Go-Round (1961) with James Mason, and as Rhoda the robot in the short-lived TV sitcom My Living Doll (1964-65) starring Robert Cummings.
And don't forget her memorable but non-speaking role as Stupefyin' Jones in Li'l Abner (1959), which she'd also played in the original stage production.

This really requires a video clip!
I played in the pit orchestra for a performance of "L'il Abner" and it was horrible. Terrible, forgettable songs and a really thin plotline. The comic strip was pretty popular during the time and I think Broadway and Al Capp were trying to cash in. I caught part of the movie once and saw Julie Newmar's "stupefying" performance and thought, "OK, that might have saved the show."

I drop everything whenever she's on "Batman".
Get a haircut, hippie.
