A new 339-page compilation, Photo by Sammy Davis, Jr., chronicles the legendary entertainer’s life with the Rat Pack in the 1950s and ’60s. The LA Times reports [2]:

Davis never went anywhere without a camera, and always had the best equipment, but wasn’t a stickler for technique. “A lot of the photos are out of focus, but it doesn’t even matter,” said (editor Burt) Boyar. “What photographer could shoot Frank (Sinatra) in his pajamas?”
