      Today, 10 May 2010, there is a report on BBC Breakfast about the death of Lena Horne. Typically, the BBC shows a fragment of this 1940 Fats Waller soundie and names the unknown girl in the striped garment as "Lena Horne", while it is an unknown studio extra, miming the words of the song, which on the soundtrack is actually sung by Myra Johnson!

      As a matter of interest - Lena was married to pianist/arranger Lennie Hayton.
