One of my favorite Christmas songs. In her day, she was one hot woman. May she R.I.P.

Yes, it does seem an ironic tragedy that this sultry "Santa Baby" originator would pass away on Christmas day, but there's more to her than that.

I found an enlightening biography here.

RIP - Eartha. You will be missed.:frowning:

Here's an Eartha story:

"Screen legend James Dean was-not only a best friend (her play brother) of actress Dorothy Dandridge; he was also a close friend of Eartha Kitt. Kitt often hung out with Dean in the passenger seat of his Porsche convertible. Dean often got grief from studio bosses for hanging out with Kitt but he ignored them and often took her out in public (with the top down) despite their objections. One evening, they were driving on Mulholland Drive when Kitt told him, ‘James, I don’t like this car; it’s going to kill you.’ Dean laughed as he calmly took the curves to finish their journey back to Miller Drive. A week later, she heard on the radio-James Dean is dead. He was on his way to a car race and crashed."
