When this was written down in the 1980s, anyone would have given their right arm to have had a copy!
Up for auction is Sammy Davis Jr.’s personal address book from the 1980’s. It reads like a time capsule of Hollywood and a who’s who of the famous. Names of stars include Muhammad Ali, Liz Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Dean Martin, Clint Eastwood, Ella Fitzgerald, Richard Pryor and Gene Kelly to name but a few.
But there’s one name that stands out from even this elite crowd, and that is Michael Jackson’s. The spiral-bound notebook is filled out in Davis’ own hand and shows many signs of use.
Michael’s number is shown clearly at the bottom left of the above image. His number was (213) 907 5130, with an alternative 1371 to replace 5130, presumably a second line.
