Eartha Kitt – end of a unique entertainer

Sad news to kick-off Boxing Day, but Eartha Kitt has died aged 81.

Probably won’t mean much, if anything, to younger members, but she was a remarkable self-styled entertainer that couldn’t be imitated or equalled. Singer, dancer, actress, comedienne, entertainer and, though no great beauty, a symbol of allure rather than sex. Nothing vulgar or revealed, (the cheap and easy way), and perhaps on a cerebral level, but nonetheless it was in her glance, timing and brief comment that the impact was made.

Eighty one years of age, not a bad innings. A wonderful entertainer and

a sad loss. No 9, I think that you have summed her up nicely.

A fine entertainer who could sing and act in an irreplaceable style - possibly the last of her breed.

Rest in Peace.
