Redd Foxx and Lena Horne
One of my favorite sitcoms of all time is Sanford and Son. My dad and I watched and rewatched and rewatched this hilarious show. We’d laugh our heads off every time – even though we had the episodes memorized, they never failed to fill our living room with laughter and joy.
One of my favorite episodes is titled A Visit from Lena Horne. Anyone who knows anything at all about me knows that I am obsessed with Lena Horne, so I guess this really doesn’t come as much of a surprise! One of my favorite stars…. on one of my favorite shows?? It doesn’t get any better than that!
The hilarious episode first aired in 1973. I rewatched it (for probably the millionth time!) this past week and it is as wonderful today as it was then. The writing and acting on this perfect series is timeless.
