almost ultimate biographical docu about Eartha kitt
18 November 2004 | by bgjm_rotterdamSee all my reviews

Eartha Kitt, portrait by herself indeed. We see Eartha with daughter Kit shapiro , we see her putting on her make-up to sing at the inoguration of president -to-be Ronald reagan. We see her visiting her birthplace and little shack where she was born as well as performing on a benefit-concert for children. We see her teaching poor black children dancing lessons.And in between that she's singing songs. I was never able to buy the official video, but I taped it from German TV. I don't think this documentary has been broadcast in many countries, as I know many Eartha Kitt-fans,like myself who never saw this film and really would like to get a DVD of it.As far as I know it's never been released on DVD !If so, please let me know ! Through the years my Kitt-video collection has been grown large. But this film All By Myself always has been special to me. As Eartha shows herself like she is in private too, and was not afraid to show herself without the heavy make-up she uses for shows, films and theatre performances.I've met Eartha several times and know from her that she wanted to make this docu because, as she put it - people had very weird ideas about what she was like. Of course we're now, in 2004, already 22 years past the release of this movie and also Eartha grew larger and luckily for us is still with us to perform for us, even after her car-accident. Still, if you get any chance to see this documentary don't hesitate to see it: you won't be sorry.
