9780061450662: Deconstructing Sammy: Music, Money, Madness, and the Mob

Adored by millions over a six-decade career, Sammy Davis was considered an entertainment icon. But despite lifetime earnings that topped $50 million, Sammy died in 1990 near bankruptcy. His estate was declared insolvent. Years later his wife, Altovise, was living in poverty and with nowhere else to go approached Albert Murray, a former federal prosecutor, to resolve Sammy's debts and clear his name. For seven years Albert probed Sammy's life to examine how someone of such notoriety coudl have lost everything, and in doing so marks this as a riveting work of biography.
