Sammy Davis, Jr: I’ve Gotta Be Me

The first major film documentary to examine Davis’ vast talent and his journey for identity through the shifting tides of civil rights and racial progress during twentieth century America. Davis was the most public black figure to embrace Judaism thereby yoking his identity to another persecuted minority. New interviews with Billy Crystal, Norman Lear, Jerry Lewis, Whoopi Goldberg, and Kim Novak are featured with never-before-seen photos from his personal collection.
