Available on iTunes
A brand new restoration of Leo Penn's A Man Called Adam starring Sammy Davis Jr., Louis Armstrong and Cicley Tyson. Set in the 1960s, talented jazz musician Adam (Sammy Davis Jr.) appears to have it all, but an inner anger and a tormented past threaten to destroy his career. When he meets jazz legend Willie Ferguson (Louis Armstrong), and falls in love with his granddaughter (Cicley Tyson), a straight-talking civil rights activist, Adam begins to question his lifestyle, and resolves to tame his drinking and wild behaviour. But despite his new-found love, Adam is haunted by the shadows of his past. Can he escape his demons, before they destroy him entirely?
