Eartha Kitt died today

As long as I'm on I may as well give you the news. She was quite an entertainer. It's seems so much sadder when someone dies during the holidays.

My father adored her. She was beautiful and her early years were very hard, indeed.

That is sad, she had colon cancer. What a bummer.

I just watched a special a few months ago on the top TV Villains and they featured all the characters from the original Batman series, including Kitt as Catwoman. I loved her in that roll. Also, she did the original version of "Santa Baby" which was thought of as "too sexy for a Christmas song" in those days as the video shows, thanks for that memory). She will be missed.

Well, I didn't realise how old she was - she was always a lot younger in my mind. Loved her singing.

I always loved Eartha Kitt. She had a voice like no other.

Every CATWOMAN since her has drawn on her interpretation of the character.....
Who even remembers that she took over the role from Julie Newmar ???

She sang in Ten languages.............

She performed a celebration concert at Carnagie Hall on the occasion of her 80th birthday..........

You are right LT. I always thought it was the other way around, but she was so much stronger in the role than Newmar...or anyone else!
