Sammy Davis Jr. - The Photogapher

Burt Boyer - Author

 

While the world has long known of Sammy Davis’s unparalleled abilities to sing , dance and act, only his closest friends and associates knew of his amazing talent and passion for photography. Now in this collection of never-before-seen photos, Burt Boyar, Sammy’s longtime friend and traveling companion, exposes these memorable images for generations of Davis’s fans, portraying a side of Sammy that has long remained a secret to the work at large. 

 

Here Davis’s candid shots include his closest friends—Fran Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Sean Connery and Paul Newman—not to mention scores of the twentieth century’s biggest stars captured at their most casual and revealing moments.

 

From his photography one can see a striking private side of Sammy, one that gives a glimpse into his difficult past and long road to success. Accompanying these unforgettable images are Burt’s intimate remembrances of Sammy, and he gives a history and a context for many of Sammy’s striking photographs.

 

Together with the photos, Boyar’s words offer a side of the performer far removed from his Rat Pack persona—one that is at once touching and fascinating.
