This is the first major documentary to explore Sammy Davis Jr.’s vast talent and journey towards self-identification through the moving tides of civil rights and racial progress in 20th-century America. It examines Davis Jr.’s remarkable career, as well as his embrace of Judaism. The film offers us a close-up portrait of a man who is complex, insightful, and highly articulate, despite his lack of a formal education. Featuring new celebrity interviews -- Billy Crystal, Norman Lear, Jerry Lewis and others -- and excerpts from performances in television, film and concert, the film explores the life and art of a uniquely gifted entertainer.

Nominated for Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature Philadelphia Film Festival.
