    Note to the reader: This episode #10 of The Sammy Davis Jr. show is not the last episode as noted in its entry on this website. His last show was an amazing concert in front of a live audience at NBC Studios. This episode contains a fellow rat pack member, Peter Lawford who, by the time of this appearance with Sammy, was "personna non grata" in Frank Sinatra's world. Since the time when Bing Crosby was selected to host President Kennedy during his visit to California and not Sinatra, Lawford was made to blame. Being the brother in law, Lawford was to ensure that the President would stay with Frankie and when it was decided to accept Crosby's hospitality instead of Sinatra's, Peter Lawford was tossed away like a bad shoe. Sammy Davis, ever loyal to all his friends, remained quite close to Lawford and appeared on several shows with him as well as starring with him in two feature films, "Salt & Pepper" and "One More Time".
