  1. Eartha Kitt seemed to live a fuller life than most people ever manage to do.. and it was so funny to find out that she was a voice in “The Emperor’s New Groove”

  2. Surely one of my favorites. I once saw her put down a heckler without the slightest bit of nastiness. The guy, young, was sitting in the front row and she just came down off the stage walked up and put her her face inches from his, gave that throaty purr and sang him a love song. I’ve never seen a more uncomfortable, embarrassed and squirming guy. Beautiful.
