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.

She was une grande dame in all ways.
Just one quote, from thousands of her bons mots:
"My recipe for life is not being afraid of myself, afraid of what I think or of my opinions."
an american original.
RIP Eartha. You were an original.
One of her signature songs (and NOT 'Santa Baby' tho' that one is great, too.) ;-)
Cripes, first Bettie and now Ertha. Where are all the icons going?
