Lee Meriwether played Losira in the StarTrek: The Original Series episode "That Which Survives." In 1955 she became Miss America as a 19 year-old drama student. , and in the 1960s began her film career. She is probably most famous for her role as Catwoman in the 1966 Batman movie, but she also was a regular on both The Time Tunnel and Barnaby Jones.
She told this story about working on Star Trek, where she wore a hip-hugging costume that included a flap covering her belly button (which was considered a big deal at the time). "One day, DeForest Kelley came over to me. I was so excited because I'd seen him in many wonderful westerns. He promptly pulled down that flap and joked, "What time is it?" I nearly died, I was so embarrassed. A few days later, he did the same thing. But this time, he was shocked to see a watch face staring at him — I had glued one in my navel. He dropped to his knees laughing hysterically...." Happy birthday Lee!
