Book Summary

In his best-selling memoir, Yes I Can! Sammy Davis, Jr. told of his struggle for identity in a world closed to blacks.  Now Sammy's back--with a sparkling, fascinating, and very personal view of Hollywood.

None of its great entertainers has ever loved Hollywood as Sammy David, Jr., does, and no one can convey the excitement of the lives of its luminaries as he can--with his unique flamboyance, wit, and enthusiasm.  In these pages you'll meet all the movie greats:  actors, directors, producers--from Humphrey Bogart and John Wayne to Marilyn Monroe and Liza Minelli.  He recalls roaring around Las Vegas with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop; discuss childrearing with Judy Garland; watching the birth of the great Taylor-Burton romance; making movies with Otto Preminger, going to bullfights with Ava Gardner; and getting philosophical advice from Bogey ("the whole world is three drinks behind.")
