Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by minooallen on Mar 10, 2017

  Breaking Barriers Lena Horne When Lena Horne signed a long-term contract with MGM it was a very big deal.

Lena Horne: a tribute

The Motion Pictures Posted by Lindsey on Jun 30, 2013

TMP celebrates a very special birthday today! One of my favorite performers of all time, Lena Mary Calhoun Horne, was born on June 30, 1917.

It surprises me that the musical Words and Music (1948) is not more beloved. The pace may be a bit draggy, but it’s an amazing showcase for an impressive group of performers, including: Mickey Rooney, Judy Garland, Gene Kelly, and Cyd Charisse.
