Sad notes – passed over Christmas.
I’m very sad to note that Eartha Kitt has died – even in her eighties, the woman simply embodied sexiness. Truly the best Catwoman ever. And as the voice of Kaa, in The Jungle Book, purely hypnotic. [To those of you who are saying “huh? Winnie the Pooh played Kaa, just before he testified to the HUAC”, wait for the radio series to repeat on BBC 7. Remember – the pictures are far better on the radio.]
As for Harold Pinter, I think it’s possible that he isn’t dead. Just … pausing.
