Seriously! Eartha Kitt died yesterday-- on Christmas day --and most of the response I'm getting is "...who?"
Eartha Kitt was an amazing singer, actress on both stage and screen, and just a fascinating personality. The two roles that you guys are most likely to recognize her is as the fourth season Catwoman on the original Batman live-action TV series-- You know, the one with "Biff!" "Pow!" "Wham!" and stuff --or as the voice of Yzma in The Emperor's New Groove.
I wrote it up on Comic Vine
, since G-Man didn't seem to be around, if you want more details. But it's a sad day. :/
