A Tale of the sixties... When you are a complete artist, and one of the biggest international stars of the 60’s like Sammy Davis, Jr., what is left to conquer? The freedom to be an American model and a benchmark for all African Americans. The challenge is great: he’s a "Black one-eyed Puerto Rican Jew" in a totally unequal society. However, he’s been a film buff from an early age, with a huge appetite for movies, and he draws his strength, energy, and creativity from what he’s watched. He would implement the staging of his life in the way of a Hollywood production. His means of achieving this are simple; he would rely on being a total artist who can do everything, play everything, whatever the medium. Film, television, music, stage...
