Sammy Sees No Evil

Harlem born Sammy Davis Jr., perhaps the most talented of Sinatra’s celebrated clan the Rat Pack, lost his left eye in a car accident in 1954. When the F.B.I. questioned him about Sinatra’s supposed mob connections, Davis explained to the feds, “Baby, let me say this. I got one eye and that one sees a lot of things that my brain tells me I shouldn’t talk about. Because, my brain says that if I do, my one eye might not be seeing anything after a while.”
