Oh, Miss Kitt...the world is a little less spectacular with you gone. You will be missed, for sure.


i figured someone else would do it for me, but it looks like not, so: thanks for the vids. much appreciated. somehow, with several slabs of jerry reed and a 70s youth, i never caught this song, nor (unrelated to all that obviously) that eartha kitt song, which wins best lipsynch performance ever award (wish they had stayed on just the one camera, but amazing all the same)


I enjoyed all these clips. The Bo Diddley clip was just amazing. I found the Bettie Page clip enlightening. So, that's what they do in sororities? I'd always wondered about that.


Surely the inspiration for Indiana Jones was the 40's cliffhanger serial "The Tiger Woman" and its ilk.

Resident Clinton

Here's what I based that statement on, via Wikipedia:

"Secret of the Incas is often cited by film buffs as a direct inspiration for the Indiana Jones franchise of films, with many of the scenes in Secret of the Incas bear a striking resemblance in tone and structure to scenes in Raiders of the Lost Ark. Throughout Secret of the Incas, the main character, Harry Steele, can be seen wearing the "Indiana Jones" outfit - brown leather jacket, fedora, tan pants, an over-the-shoulder bag, and revolver. The character also sometimes wears a light beard, unusual for films of its time, and there is a tomb scene involving a revelatory shaft of light similar to the "Map Room" sequence in Raiders.

Raider's costume designer Deborah Nadoolman Landis noted that the inspiration for Indiana's costume was Charlton Heston's Harry Steele in Secret of the Incas: "We did watch this film together as a crew several times, and I always thought it strange that the filmmakers did not credit it later as the inspiration for the series.""

That said, the old 40s serials were certainly also an inspiration to the creation of the film, as Lucas and Spielberg have often stated.
