    I still can't get over how GREAT Lena looks for her age. I wonder how Alicia Keys is going to do when she plays Lena in the movie?

    I just caught her last night on a rerun of the '70's sitcom Sanford & Son. She was so beautiful and still is. Is she part white?

    From what I've read, both sides of Lena's family are mixed with Native-American and white.

    Oh, I didn't know about her Native American ancestry. Interesting. Whatever her heritage, she's stunning.

    Many African Americans have Native American in their background

    I never thought Lena Horne was all that attractive. She was kind of funny looking. Now Dorothy Dandridge on the other hand...

    P.S. to the OP, you're supposed to put [actress/singer] in th thread title!! ::gives you the side eye of death::

    Lena was the epitome of class, strength, beauty, brains & talent. There won't ever be another one like her.
