R.I.P. Kitt, Pinter, Mulligan

While Christmas is a time of good cheer, this year the holiday also took some great talents from us.

The legendary Eartha Kitt died of colon cancer at the age of 81. The African-American actress and singer with one of the most 'purrr-fect' voices to ever grace the screen or stage starred in such films as "The Mark of the Hawk," "Erik the Viking," "Boomerang," "The Emperor's New Groove" and "Holes".

Her most memorable work though lies in her renditions of songs like "Santa Baby", and her role as Catwoman in three episodes of the classic 1960's "Batman" TV series.

Also taken from us was British nobel laureate playwright, screen writer and director Harold Pinter who died at 78 from cancer. Along with his acclaimed plays, many of which he adapted for the screen, he penned the scripts for such films as "The Quiller Memorandum ," "The French Lieutenant's Woman" and the recent remake of "Sleuth".

Finally film director Robert Mulligan, whose credits include "Fear Strikes Out" and the acclaimed film adaptation of "To Kill a Mockingbird", died at 83 after a battle with heart disease. Mulligan’s last film was the 1991 drama "The Man in the Moon" which was Reese Witherspoon’s first movie.
