    There is a great story regarding Sammy Davis, Jr. being buried with thousands of dollars in cash and a fortune in expensive jewelry, including a Cartier gold watch given to him by Frank Sinatra which Sammy treasured and wore constantly... he also stipulated that it go to the grave with him. The story goes that his widow Altovise ran out of money shortly after Sammy's demise and had him exhumed to retreive the loot. Now, this story has been debated back and forth and flatly denied by many "insiders," but: a couple of years ago, that SAME watch came up for bid in a celebrity auction with an expected pricetag of $10-20,000 [I don't know what the final selling price was].

    Here's the watch both front and back where you can still see the worn engraving Sinatra added: "SAMMY, I LUV YA, F.A.S."

    Pretty much proves that although you CAN take it with you... someone else can come along and take it right back!

    Kind of interesting, Sammys daughter has sold the rights to Sammys life story to two companies!?!?!
    A three year option for $10 000 doesn't seem like very much to me?

    It's sad that his widow was left penniless, and it does not seem like his daughter has much good going on:

    Sammys Dad died only two years prior to him, and his mother outlived him by 10 years.

    May Britt is still alive. She is the mother of Tracy, his only biological child.

    I cannot believe that Tracy would sell the rights to his life for 10k???

    She must be in dire straights to sell for 10K - someone got lucky

    I just don't know which is more shocking... The fact that he blew Lovelace's hubby, or dabbling in the devil! Man oh man am I glad I finally joined the forums! I've learned SO much!

    Just watched a pretty good PBS doc on him this weekend. Just to clear up a few things...he actually slept in the Lincoln Bedroom at the White House, had more than one child with May Britt, and the Satanic stuff wasn't mentioned! LOL
