Reading about Shirley’s participation at the 1968 San Remo festival, it brings me to mind that another great lady entered that year, namely Eartha Kitt, she didn’t win either.
I once heard an interview with Shirley and Eartha together in which they joked about one hitting the other backstage (don’t remember who was the ‘hitter’)
Thanks, Frans. I can’t imagine fisticuffs between Eartha and Shirley 🙂
They are friends. DSB went to see Eartha’s show last year in London.
Can you picture it? “And in the pink corner… Basher Bassey!”
