As arguably the greatest on-screen Catwoman of them all, Julie Newmar co-starred with Adam West on the campy “Batman” TV series in the '60s, and the two were friends since. 

The Times reached out to Newmar for her thoughts on West, whom she saw a few weeks ago at the Hollywood Show, an autograph signing experience for fans:

Stellar, exemplar, a king to the end.  He was bright, witty and fun to work with.  I will miss him in the physical world and savor him always in the world of imagination and creativity.  He meant so much to people. A friend said: 'The father that we wanted.' That is a great gift, no matter how you live it.
