    Has TCM made any announcement about a Tribute night for this legendary Lady?

    Wow, I had no idea she was 92. What a beautiful, strong, talented and classy lady. I am sure she will be missed by many.

    I believe they have already shown a tribute interstitial video today featuring "If You Can Dream", from "Meet Me in Las Vegas".

    I am sure there will be a memorial tribute night soon.

    BTW, Rex, part of "Ain't It the Truth" from "Cabin in the Sky" is shown in That's Entertainment III, which you can rent. I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't part of Special Features on the CITS DVD, if there is one.

    I didn't know they used to cut scenes featuring her so the movies could be shown in the south.

    I guess I'll be renting it...I'm not a big musical fan, but I loved Lena's two starring movies...

    Yes, they did, the bastards. Her scenes were always filmed so as not to be integral to the plots of the films she was featured in. They also made her wear a darker makeup onscreen because she photographed like a white woman. So Louis B. Mayer, that "sweetheart", had Max Factor create a shade for her called "Dark Egyptian" that they put all over her body so she looked "black" enough. MGM mistreated her, but those were the times.
