Description
Sammy Davis Jr. Personal Copy of the Cannonball Run II Script, 1984 & 60th Anniversary in Show Business Copy of Daily Variety, 1989 Sammy's copy of the final draft of the script for the 1984 action-comedy sequel, with revisions dating May 1-16, 1984. As odd as it may sound, the movie was something of a last hurrah for the Rat Pack; it was the final feature film appearance of both Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra (in a brief cameo), and one of Sammy's last performances as well. The script is in Very Fine to Excellent condition, with mild soiling and cover wear, and very light wear and dog-eared corners on some pages. From the Sammy Davis Jr. Estate. Leatherbound copy of the May 24, 1989, issue of Daily Variety, which was dedicated to the 60th anniversary of Sammy Davis Jr.'s career as a singer and actor. The first free page is inscribed Dear Mr. Davis, I can't sing and I can't dance, but then again - you can't bind books! Thank you for all the joy and happiness you have given me and the world' so far. With deep appreciation, Ronnie, June '89. From the Sammy Davis Jr. Estate. No Reserve.
