Sammy Davis, Jr. was born on December 8, 1925, in New York City. He began his career in 1928 as a singer. He is also known for his music recordings, and appearances in movies and Broadway shows. He served in the United States Army from 1943 through 1945. He was the victim of two extortion attempts, one in 1961 and the other in 1973. The Assistant United States Attorneys declined prosecution in both cases. The first letter was thought to be a crank-type letter, and the second letter was mailed by a former mental patient who sent letters regularly to well known people. In December 1963, it was alleged that Sammy Davis, Jr. had been kidnaped several years ago by some Chicago mobsters while he was appearing in Las Vegas, and released after being told to forget about marrying movie actress Kim Novak.
