Frank, Liza & Sammy: The Ultimate Event (1989)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This special was shown on television just before Sammy Davis, Jr. would die of cancer. This was recorded over a three night stay at the Fox Theatre in Detroit and was a part of the "Ultimate Event" tour, which featured the three legends doing a greatest hits type of package.

The documentary opens up with Sinatra narrating his thoughts on the tour and we get a few bits about how happy it made him to perform with Liza and Sammy. From here we get some behind-the-scenes stuff where we see Liza getting her costume fittings and Sammy talks about being out on the road. From this point we get Sammy's set first then followed by Liza and finally Sinatra comes out before the three are reunited for the encore.

If you're a fan of any of the three musicians then you're bound to love this. Personally speaking I thought Liza somewhat stood out like a sore thumb. Not that she's not talented or doesn't have a great voice but I just didn't think her act went too well in between Sammy and Frank's. With that said, the encore was highly fun and there's no question that Sammy appears to be very happy performing for the people and he does seem genuinely touched that people like his act.
