What can you say about this legend. In this day an age when some female performers show as much skin and cleavage as they can, non could match the sexiness and elegance of Eartha Kitt. Kitt could merely talk and purr like a kitten and she could have her way on any given day.
My first rememberance of Kitt was when she starred as The Cat Woman on the Batman television series. She had a body that could kill and a style that was second to none. Always confident and commanding respect.
Kitt left us on Christmas Day 2008 at the age of 81. After her many accomplishments and such a stellar career, I don’t find it strange that she would depart on a day when her most famous piece of work is most revered. “Santa Baby,” is her signature card – and when listening to it… my favorite line is,
“Santa Baby, forgot to mention on I just need one little thing… a ring. I don’t mean on the phone.”
She meant that stuff too!
Anyway – she will be missed! Today we celebrate the life of Eartha “Miss Kitty” Kitt.
