Lena Horne’s ‘Stormy Weather’: Watch It!

I couldn’t help it. Looking out of my window this morning in Brooklyn, it’s pouring and gross. But that just means it’s time for a good cup of tea, my laptop and uninterrupted creativity, right? What better to accompany me than the incomparable Lena Horne’s “Stormy Weather”? I love this song, not to mention it reminds me of my grandmother. Was I the only one who had to watch this movie as a kid? Once she got Stormy Weather, originally released in 1943, on VHS it was on and cracking. I’m grateful for the history lesson. *plays it again* Watch Lena be fabulous after the jump!
