About The Film
(1966) Sammy Davis Jr. stars as a respected but volatile jazz trumpeter on a downward spiral sparked by racism and personal tragedy.

Directed by Leo Penn, this somber drama features an all-star cast that includes Frank Sinatra Jr., Louis Armstrong, Ossie Davis, Mel Tormé and Lola Falana.
This film is for audiences 18 and up.
