Sammy Davis Jr.
After serving in World War II, he returned to the United States with a deeper desire than ever to be famous, establishing a successful recording career and a relationship with the high-profile Rat Pack, which led to roles in Ocean's Eleven (1960), Sergeants 3 (1962), Robin and the 7 Hoods (1964) and Salt and Pepper (1968). Davis made his Broadway debut in 1956 in the semiautobiographical musical "Mr. Wonderful" and earned a Tony nomination in 1964 for his performance in the musical version of Clifford Odets's "Golden Boy."
He returned to the stage in 1978 with a revival of "Stop the World, I Want to Get Off." A longtime cigar smoker, he died May 16, 1990, of throat cancer.
High jinks and hilarity ensue as daring drivers -- including Burt Reynolds, Farrah Fawcett, Dom DeLuise, Peter Fonda, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Jackie Chan -- team up for an illegal cross-country road race that they'll do anything to win.
