Not the Catwoman we know and love but a one dimensional imposter
30 April 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Catwoman's Dressed to Kill" was, like all but one Catwoman appearance before it, scripted by Stanley Ralph Ross, but you wouldn't know it from the presentation. Julie Newmar, busy filming "Mackenna's Gold" on location, was unavailable this third season, so in casting a new Catwoman the producers selected Eartha Kitt chiefly for her ability to speak French, though that would not come into play until her team up with Cesar Romero's Joker. Filmed afterwards but broadcast before, this sorry entry continues the downward slide from the Ffogg-bound triple header, a great villainess reduced to a pouting jealous snit over Batgirl's selection as 'Gotham City's Best Dressed Crime Fightress.' One would think that Batgirl would at least have more to do, but sadly she's just as helpless as she was in Londinium, easily captured by Catwoman and saved by the timely intervention of Alfred's amusing 'oldest living hippie.' Even the climactic fight sizes up as the season's worst, as Eartha Kitt simply stands and watches the mêlée without once budging from her self proclaimed throne, offering up a pitiful hiss at Batgirl before departing. Eartha may have seemed like purrfect casting in regard to her catlike qualities as a slinky singer (and short stature opposite Yvonne Craig), but it takes more than a great figure to capture the essence of the character, and her whining, one note interpretation remains torturous to watch in the absence of the beloved, multi dimensional Julie Newmar. And if she was such a great singer, why does her high pitched squeal grate on the ears like fingernails on a chalkboard?
