Lena Horne on “What’s My Line” (1958)

Anoth­er great way to remem­ber the great Lena Horne. This clip brings you back to 1958, when Horne appeared on What’s My Line, the longest-run­ning game show in Amer­i­can tele­vi­sion his­to­ry. Dur­ing its eigh­teen sea­sons, the show fea­tured hun­dreds of celebri­ties, includ­ing some of America’s lead­ing cul­tur­al fig­ures. You can rewind the video tape and also check out appear­ances made by Sal­vador Dali, Alfred Hitch­cock, Frank Lloyd Wright, Eleanor Roo­sevelt, Grou­cho Marx, Carl Sand­burg, among oth­ers.
