Vale – Eartha Kitt

Hi folks. I know I’m a little late getting this post online, but hey, what with the Christmas rush and travelling and all, I’ve been away from the computer. News came through a while ago that legendary performer Eartha Kitt has passed away.

Most of you reading this will probably remember her from her days as a sultry singer on Boradway and radio, or even as one of the Catwomen on the original Batman live-action TV show with Adam West & Burt Ward. But for us here at fernbyfilms.com, who are perhaps not old enough to remember her in her prime, we will fondly recall her vocal triumph as Yzma in the Disney classic, The Emperor’s New Groove.

The sound of her golden, magical, sexy voice has been silenced.

Vale – Eartha Kitt.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney's keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them. Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
