Cabin in the Sky

Here's the trailer to a neat little fantasy film, CABIN IN THE SKY (1943).

More widely known for its place in the pantheon of African-American cinema (and as director Vincente Minelli's first film), its fantastical contents are not negligible.

And those "fantastic" contents include the amazingly sexy Lena Horne.

I couldn't find a clip of her singing any of her numbers from CABIN, but here she is singing "Stormy Weather" from PANAMA HATTIE (1942).

Members of the Deanna Durbin Fan Club have permission to add Lena Horne to their wall of pinups.
