Black History Feature: Diana Ross & Sammy Davis Jr.


I love this picture of entertainment icons, Diana Ross and Rat Pack member, Sammy Davis Jr. This picture was taken in 1968 on the set of The Hollywood Palace, a variety televison show that ran from 1964 to 1970. Sammy Davis Jr. hosted the episode where Diana Ross and The Supremes were the musical guests. 

It appears the picture may have been taken during a commercial break. Sammy in his custom made tuxedo looks like he was getting into his zone. I like the expression on Diana Ross' face because you can't tell what she was thinking. Was there tension between her and the other Supremes? Was Sammy being a diva? LOL! Oh to have been a fly buzzing around that set.

Miss Ross looked amazing. The tousled hair, white gown, chandelier earrings. Black Hollywood Glamour!!!!
