In Memoriam: Eartha Kitt & Harold Pinter
Two entertainment legends passed over the holidays: singer/actress Eartha Kitt and playwright and Noble Laureate Harold Pinter. Eartha was best known for playing Catwoman in the campy 1960s television version of Batman and for her distinctive singing style. She was a gay icon supreme. Pinter was one of the greatest writers ever -- The Caretaker, The Birthday Party and his screenplay for The French Lieutenant's Woman, among many other fabulous things. Both Kitt, 81, and Pinter, 78, lost battles with cancer. They will be missed.
