A waste of time and paper. No one gives a rats behind about this guy! It's a little late to be publishing something like this. There may have been interest if it came out not too long after he died, but he's been gone so long that no one really cares.

This is so not true...all lies! I have known Altovise Davis for over thirty years and she wasn't allowed out with any straight men...only gays! Crazy.....

Thank you,

Sammy Davis was a fantastic entertainer.
I know nothing about his personal life, and don't care.
All I know is that when I see his work, acting, dancing, singing, it brings a huge smile to my face and I remember what I have watched for a long time.

Shame we don't live forever.
