Eartha Kitt Dies

Eartha Kitt, singer, actress, dancer, whose career lasted for more than 60 years, died in New York on Christmas day. She was 81. She had been suffering from colon cancer. She was successful in all mediums of entertainment, had a major hit with "Santa Baby" in 1953 and was an outspoken critic of the Vietman War which derailed her career for a short time. Of course to us Baby Boomers, she was one of the 3 Catwomen to appear on Batman, due to obligations Julie Newmar had at the time. I wouldn't consider her the best Catwoman, but she was good and she was sexy.. brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. 1927-2008
