June 13, 1968: Lena Horne discusses her return to Hollywood after 12 years for “Patch,” which was apparently released as “Death of a Gunfighter.” "I left because I got sick and tired of being a Negro woman leaning against a pillar and singing, and I'm back because I don't have to do any of those things," she tells The Times’ Wayne Warga.
