Eartha Kitt growls no more

Friday, December 26, 2008

The legendary singer and dancer, Eartha Kitt, passed away yesterday. Famous for her on-stage growls and purrs, Orson Wells called her "the most exciting woman alive." She left an indelible mark on generations with her portrayals Helen of Troy in Faust, Catwoman on Batman, and her iconic Christmas song, Santa Baby.

"Love may be a simple thing, but not Eartha Kitt."
— John Hockenberry
