Morrissey mentions meeting Eartha in [[Mention::Autobiography]]:
At an airport in Toronto, Eartha Kitt is standing by herself – she who once famously shared a bed with both James Dean and Paul Newman at the same time (or so plain speaking has it). Full of sensuality, she pulled herself out of southern swampland to float insubordinate gestures across the map of American entertainment, and she succeeded very well. Amusingly, her daughter is called Kitt, which surely makes her Kitt Kitt. There are moments when you must give in, so I blandly stick my bland neck out.
‘Do you mind if I say hello?’ I ask Eartha Kitt. She laughs a head-thrown-back laugh. ‘We’re a group from England called the Smiths,’ throws in Johnny. Eartha gives a second laugh – possibly imagining a large family rather than a musical group.
