A brief but memorable version
by the glamorous star

One of Lena Horne’s best cameo appearances in a film was this version of “Honeysuckle Rose” from 1943.

First, altoist Benny Carter is featured for a half-chorus.

Lena Horne then makes a grand entrance (accentuated by mirrors) and does a fine job singing the Fats Waller song.

In addition to her glamour, this film clip shows that Lena Horne could have been a major jazz singer if she had chosen that path throughout her career.
