LATEST: Veteran actress Eartha Kitt has praised the British craftsmanship of her RANGE ROVER vehicle after it saved her life in a dangerous car crash last week (05AUG04).

The 77-year-old - who played the original CATWOMAN in the 1960s BATMAN TV show - was left hanging upside down in her car after a serious collision with another vehicle near her home in Connecticut last Thursday (05AUG04).

After a short stay in hospital, Kitt was released after suffering only minor injuries.

The Hollywood actress is convinced the superior construction of the all-terrain vehicle saved her from serious injury.

She says, "Thank God for that car. I don't think I'll ever drive another."
