Sammy Davis, Jr.: I've Gotta Be Me plot

The contrast is tragic: entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. presents himself in the 1950s as an ambassador for African Americans; at the same time, he is mocked as a defector by his supporters. This documentary highlights Davis's overwhelming talent as well as the tragedies of his life: the recurring racism, the car accident in which he loses his left eye because hospitals refuse to admit him, and the dramatic split with Frank Sinatra.
