Take a guess who's visiting the Inner Toob blog today?
That's a pretty good guess.....
AS SEEN IN:
'Sanford And Son'
["A Visit From Lena Horne"]
From TV Rage:
Fred spots Lena Horne's car in the parking lot while touring the NBC studios and sneaks away to meet "the first lady of his dreams."
From the IMDb:
Fast-thinking Fred fools Lena Horne into visiting the Sanford home after he spins her a sob story about little lame Lamont who looks upon Lena as a second mother.
From the Paley Center:
One in this series of comedies about the life and times of a junk dealer and his son. In this episode, Fred is embarrassed when no one will believe that he met Lena Horne while on an NBC studio tour. He tries to convince the singer to come over to the house by fabricating the story that his son, Lamont, is a handicapped child who sees her as a mother figure. Fred bets money with his friends that Horne will come, and he grows nervous when the time of her arrival comes -- and goes.
Here I come, Elizabeth!
