The fabulash Ms. Eartha Kitt was born on this day in 1927.
Watch Eartha perform the song “I Love Men” on the German WWF-Club.
I will say one thing for the 4 male back-up dancers. Its hard to out camp Kitt, but these boys give it the old bathhouse try.
Must be seen to be believed.
TRIVIA: Eartha Kitt was blacklisted after she publicly criticized the Vietnam War at a 1968 White House luncheon in the presence of the first lady, Lady Bird Johnson. Her career in the U.S. went into a severe decline. In the 1970s it began to recover after news surfaced that she had been subjected to U.S. Secret Service surveillance.
