Eartha Kitt: The Most Exciting Woman in the World

Genre: Documentary, Musical; Starring: Eartha Kitt; Status: In Season

Like both chitlins and caviar, Kitt is an acquired taste. Either you savor her stylized purring, or you can’t digest her exaggerated mannerisms and off-pitch voice. Orson Welles called her ”the most exciting woman in the world,” but this concert, taped in Germany, will disappoint even avid fans. Technically, Eartha Kitt: The Most Exciting Woman in the World looks and sounds low-budget; artistically, it offers no insight into either the material or the woman. One or two bonbons are flavorful (”Surabaya Johnny,” ”Here’s to Life”), but the rest are hard to swallow. D
