For The Record...

Sammy Davis Jr. DID have a glass eye.

It was real and it was spectacular.

What got me is the tag "ANOTHER GLASS EYE POST." With bated breath I await more posts fitting this label.

I actually knew about him but I am another one who thought Sandy Duncan had one, as well.

Sorry, I'm still coming to terms about Sandy. You know, not having a glass eye. I was told she did. Now I guess I can't believe anything anyone says anymore...

I read Sammy's autobiography "I Can," about 20 years ago. It was very interesting. He related the horrifying story of how he lost his eye, in an auto accident. So yeah, I knew about it.

yeah, but did HE eat Triscuits "one right after another"??

Dick Small said...

No, Sandy ate Wheat Thins. Not Triscuits.

My favourite SDJ anecdote, okay the only SDJ anecdote I remember is hearing that he was stopped by a cop speeding and when the officer asked him if he knew he was way over the speed limit he said: I've got one good eye, you want me to keep it on the road or on the speedometer?
