Before Madonna, Halle Berry or Angelina Jolie, there was Eartha Kitt. The self-proclaimed "original Material Girl" purred her way to Hollywood stardom as fierce feline villain Catwoman on the campy television series, "Batman" (ABC, 1966-68). She was also a star of the Broadway stage, cabaret performer, and a recording artist. Proving she was more than just a sex kitten, Kitt raised eyebrows and put her career on the line by speaking out about the Vietnam War - to First Lady Johnson - and becoming a fervent supporter of the gay community. The sultry and somewhat kooky artist received her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960, cementing her legendary status in theater, film, television, and music.
