Details

Sammy Davis, Jr. had the kind of career that was indisputably legendary, so vast and multi-faceted that it was dizzying in its scope and scale. And yet, his life was complex, complicated and contradictory. Davis strived to achieve the American Dream in a time of racial prejudice and shifting political territory. In this new documentary, director Sam Pollard simultaneously manages to pay tribute to the Rat Pack member whilst never hiding from his conflicted positions and troubled public perception throughout the shifting tides of civil rights and racial difficulties of 20th century America.
