R.I.P. Eartha Kitt

Can't say that I knew much about Eartha Kitt's career beyond her brief appearance in "Boomerang," her stint as Catwoman in the old "Batman" TV series and her sultry rendition of "Santa Baby."

But, that said, homage must be paid to a woman once dubbed the "most exciting woman in the world" by Orson Welles. Here's the actual factuals - check out the bit about her anti-Vietnam War tirade that got her investigated by the FBI and CIA.

Here's how I was first introduced to Ms. Kitt, through one of my favorite movies of all-time - and one of the last time that Eddie Murphy was a bankable movie star. Lady Eloise was no joke, kids.

I know that I've gotten very dependent on YouTube, as of late. I need to watch that, I know.
