Film: ‘Sammy Davis Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me’ Followed by Q&A with with Director

May 30 @ 7:30 pm

A dancer, singer, impressionist, and actor of unparalleled charisma, Sammy Davis Jr. began dazzling audiences at age three and never stopped until his death at 64.

A star of stage and screen and member of the legendary Rat Pack, he broke racial barriers but paid a heavy price for it.

Defying societal norms concerning interracial romance, religion, and political affiliation, Davis courted controversy many times, but always with grace and honesty.

Following the film will be a Q&A with director Sam Pollard, interviewed by Bruce Fretts, New York Times freelance entertainment writer.

This showing is part of the Greenwich International Film Festival. Tickets for this event and others are on sale now.
