RIP Eartha Kitt
In today's onslaught of media vixens it is too easy to gain attention simply by exposing one's self to the lens. Once upon a time there was a woman whose smouldering sensuality, singular growl and remarkable honesty and wit ignited the tinder in more than one generation of men's hearts. The incendiary brilliance of Eartha Kitt leaves a legacy of film and song, evidence of the doors she kicked open for women and for persons of colour. Truly one of a kind.
