Reruns of the 1960s Batman TV series introduced me to not only the Batman mythos, but the joy of balls-out camp, pop art, and the ethereal being that is/was Eartha Kitt: my favorite Catwoman. The way she smilingly spat or slinked her lines while heating up the screen enraptured me. She brought an energy to the show that was a complete change from Julie Newmar. She brought danger.
Beyond Catwoman, I find her to be a fascinating performer; the type that rarely exists in our culture anymore. She's hard for me to write about because her work is unclassifiable in its originality. What I'll say is that she and the performances she left behind are complex and thrilling, and her soul baring bravery is inspiring.
