Sammy Davis, Jr: I've Gotta Be Me
Directed by Sam Pollard
USA | 100 minutes | 2017
A star-studded roster of interviewees including Jerry Lewis, Whoopi Goldberg, Norman Lear, Quincy Jones, and Billy Crystal, pay tribute to the legendary dancer, singer, impressionist, and actor in this exhilarating film about Sammy Davis, Jr. that will leave you gasping in awe and delight. A star of stage and screen and member of the legendary Rat Pack, Sammy Davis, Jr. broke racial and religious barriers during his iconic career as a performer and patriot, and through it all he remained as devoted to Judaism as he was to entertainment. With never-before-seen photographs from his vast personal collection and excerpts from his electric performances on television, film and concerts, Sammy Davis, Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me explores the life and art of a uniquely gifted entertainer whose trajectory blazed across the major flashpoints of American society from the Depression through the 1980s.
Featuring a Closing Night Party with a reception, wine, and live music inspired by Sammy Davis and The Rat Pack from 7:00pm-8:00pm.
