The Sammy Davis Jr. Show was hosted by song-and-dance man Sammy Davis Jr. showcased his talents in this Musical Variety series. At the series start however Sammy was under contract for a "Special" with ABC and the stipulation was that he not appear on television until three weeks preceding the airing of that special. So after the premiere episode Sammy had three guest hosts fill in for him, they were Johnny Carson, Sean Connery and Jerry Lewis. Produced by Joe Hamilton with Associate Producer Carol Kritz. Sammy enlisted marvelous George Rhodes to head the orchestra and the Lester Wilson Dancers. His autobiographical book which had just been published in 1965 called Yes, I Can! told exactly all the odds this multi-talented performer had to overcome. He was only the second Black to host his own show. Nat King Cole was the first in the late 50's. However, the world of music was changing and with the Beatles invasion and more modern shows cropping up his show lasted a scant 15 episodes.

Nicky Nelson is a fast-talking sideshow barker with a wax-and-alive concession on Atlantic City's boardwalk. Even with the band of his friend, struggling musician Gene Krupa, playing on the sidewalk to attract the customers, "The Living Corpse" and other low-rent acts aren't enough to lure the seen-it-all boardwalk strollers, and the landlord closes the show in lieu of never-paid rent. Nicky, always promoting, goes to Stephen Hanratty, head of the pier's Dance Pavilion, to plug Krupa's band as an attraction, but Hanratty won't even listen to them. But, while there, he meets singer Lily Racquel, who knows he is a phoney but might have the ability to to talk a radio-station manager into giving her an audition. She gives him a ring to help finance the project; he promptly loses it in a crap-game.
