SORRY, BUT, SHE'LL BE REMEMBERED...:

Eartha Kitt: Singer and actress with a difficult reputation who was described as 'the most exciting woman on earth' (Tom Vallance, 27 December 2008, Independent)

When New Faces of 1952, a revue celebrating fresh talent, opened on Broadway, the New York Times critic Brooks Atkinson stated, "Eartha Kitt not only looks incendiary but she can make a song burst into flame."

Orson Welles went further, calling her, "the most exciting woman on earth". He had backed up his opinion by featuring her in a play he produced in the French capital, and is alleged to have had a torrid affair with her some years later. It is easy to understand the impact Kitt had, for there had never been a performer quite like her.


...for wasting Batman episodes that could have featured the real Catwoman, Julie Newmar, instead.
