Lena Horne (June 30, 1917 – May 9, 2010)
"That Ain't My Fur, That's Jimmy Nederlander's Fur, let him worry about it!"
That's the line I remember most from seeing Lena Horne's show at the Orpheum Theater in San Francisco in the early '80s
It was her response to two women whispering in the audience in the front row. Ms. Horne said that she paused, and asked "What is Wrong?"
They replied - "Your fur is on the floor!"
To which Ms. Horne replied, "That Ain't My Fur, That's Jimmy Nederlander's fur, let him worry about it!"
