One good clip deserves another. Here's a terrific version of Old Fashioned Girl:
From what looks to be the same (I'm guessing German) broadcast from the early 60s, there's also a version on You Tube of I Want to be Evil, which isn't bad but which is taken at a swifter tempo than the record, making some of the lyrics--despite Kitt's perfect diction--harder to get.

My favorite off-the-wall performance is Eartha voicing "Emperor's New Groove."

She is my favorite Orson Welles paramour. Hayworth was so fragile it is actually rather painful to think of her with the difficult Welles. But Eartha Kitt--purr-fect, as you say. Just the right mixture of allure and claw. As I recall, she has always had only gracious things to say about him, too.
