Sammy Davis Jr. was the consummate American entertainer who could sing, dance, act and play the drums — but he was also a boozer and ladies' man whose off-stage antics made him a perfect fit for "The Rat Pack."

And now, Newsmax TV is proud to present an intimate portrait of a multi-talented African American performer who ran hard with Frank Sinatra's legendary squadron of bad boys in "The Rat Pack: Sammy Davis Jr."

"The Rat Pack: Sammy Davis Jr." will air Saturday, Feb. 11 at 9 p.m./ET only on Newsmax TV, your No. 1 choice for breaking news, hard-hitting opinion and award-winning documentaries.

Along with Sinatra, Dean Martin and Joey Bishop, Davis was one of the most beloved stars of the 50s, 60s and 70s — part of a Pack that worked hard to entertain millions, and also treated the world as their personal playground.

Davis himself was unique and complex — starting in show business as a child, later converting to Judaism, and topping the charts with million-selling albums and hits like "Candy Man" and "I've Gotta Be Me" and starring in movies like, "Ocean's 11" and "Sweet Charity."

With the use of concert footage, TV and film clips and newsreels, "The Rat Pack: Sammy Davis Jr." gives you a fascinating look at one of America's greatest showmen — one you won't want to miss.

"The Rat Pack: Sammy Davis Jr." adds to the diverse programming featured on Newsmax TV, America's fast-growing news and information channel, carried in more than 40 million U.S. satellite and cable homes.

With compelling original shows such as "Newsmax Prime," "The Howie Carr Show," "The Joe Pags Show," "America Talks Live," and "The Steve Malzberg Show," Newsmax TV has become the nation's must-watch news, lifestyle and information channel.
