The knives were out now. Aaron had dropped the show from "his" ABC time slot. Columbia Pics TV really ran this episode way under pattern budget. Notice sound of hammering in "Bojangles and the Dancer" due to Columbia not wanting to bring Sammy back for ADR. Sammy Davis. What a wonderful guy... As long as you didn't tell him how to do his job. Really from the Frank Sinatra school of 1 take. Warned me not to develop more than one marketable talent. Who, unlike him with three (dancer, singer and personality)which is fine because I don't have any. Apparently sick during episode. Info that was used in the show. See one of the greats of the biz on this episode.
