A Man Called Adam
Sammy Davis Jr. stars as a respected but volatile jazz trumpeter on a downward spiral sparked by racism and personal tragedy. A relationship with a civil rights activist (Cicely Tyson) seems to lift him out of his doldrums, but the turnaround is temporary. 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.
