    Very sad. The last remaining link, I believe, to a very special era in show business.

    I was raised listening to musicals, big band, Sinatra, Judy Garland, Lena Horne and have to admit that my parents had great taste in music.

    Another entertainer whom I have known of my entire life, is gone.

    A genuine talent. Knew her niche, and played to it.

    Also a monstrous temperment, when things didn't go precisely her way,
    but that was part of the package.

    Sirs, Madames,

    My favorite LH moment was her turn on Sanford and Son. Fred: "I'm coming to you darling ... with the Horne." She also induced Lamont's only heart-attack.

  5. I lover her as Catwoman

    How many people here had never heard of her until The Cosby Show?

    WTF? That was Ertha Kitt.
    RIP to a legendary talent who didn't let racism and bigotry stop her from making it to the top.
  8. No - no. Pretty sure Lena Horne was Catwoman. She was also Spenser Tracy's wife in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner.

    I think you're trying to be a smart ass and its showing. Katherine Hepburn was Spenser Tracy's wife. You google every thing else, why not google that?

    Mizzou, I knew about Horne way before the Cosby Show premiered on television.
