MAY 16, 1990: Frank lost a close friend when Sammy Davis Jr. died of throat cancer at the age of 64. Although he canceled the remaining four nights of his sold-out Radio City Music Hall concerts, while he was performing on stage he kept his emotions to himself as his friend lay dying in Los Angeles. He said, "I wish the world could have known Sam as I did. Sam never gave less than 100 percent when he was on stage, and he gave even more to those of us lucky enough to call him a friend. He was a class act, and I will miss him forever."
Sammy on a heart warming story of his life long friend, “When I lost my eye in a car accident, the first place I went–because I had no place to go except the hotel room I was living in then–was to Palm Springs, to Frank. You can have a tendency, at a time like that, for self-pity: ‘Oh, what am I going to do?’ He cut it off by making me laugh. The jokes started when I was in the hospital and they continue today: An eye chart with an inscription: “To Smokey. Practice. Practice.” (He calls me Smokey because I smoke so much.) A gift: half a pair of binoculars, with the other half sawed off for Jilly Rizzo, whose bad eye is on the opposite side. The card: “You guys should get together.” The only thing Sinatra ever said of a serious nature was, “Don’t worry about nothing”–and that’s the umbrella. “
