Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will dedicate the Friday, May 21, primetime lineup to paying tribute to legendary singer-actress Lena Horne, who passed away last week at the age of 92. The night’s collection will feature three films with defining Horne performances. Also included is one of Horne’s favorite films, the 1943 John Garfield drama The Fallen Sparrow.


8 PM “The Duke is Tops” (1938), featuring Horne’s performances of the songs “I Know You Remember” and “Don’t Let Our Love Song Turn Into a Blues.”


9:30 PM “Cabin in the Sky” (1943), starring Horne, Eddie “Rochester” Anderson and Ethel Waters.


11:15 PM “Panama Hattie” (1942), featuring Horne’s performances of “Just One of Those Things” and “The Sping.”


12:45 AM “The Fallen Sparrow” (1943), starring John Garfield and Maureen O’Hara in the story of a former Spanish Civil War prisoner searching for the truth about the death of a friend. A tremendous fan of Garfield, Horne counted this film among her favorites.


“There was never anyone quite like Lena Horne as an entertainer, a presence or a trail-blazer,” said TCM host Robert Osborne. “We’ve been shortchanged only by the limited number of worthwhile roles she was given to play in movies. But she certainly gave us 100 percent of her remarkable talent in those she did make. We’re also very proud at Turner Classic Movies that she was one of our loyal TCM viewers.”
