A Man Called Adam Review

This will be on Bounce TV for maybe a week or two before they take it out of circulation (just looked at the Dec. 2012 schedule and I saw a lot of Sidney Poitier and Eddie Griffin movies on the roster).

Anyway, the great Sammy Davis Jr. plays
an alcoholic musician looking to get right in his life.  Nothing unfamiliar today but what got my attention was the ladies that were after him.  Cicely Tyson (she goes from being super-resistant to his biggest cheerleader is less than 1/2 hour), Lola Falana and a really young Ja'Net DuBois (bka Willona).  Dude (RIP) was no bigger than a minute but I was shocked as to why Harry Belafonte wasn't cast.  I guess Mr. Day-O didn't play ball like that.
In the video above, "Bookman" plays a blind musician who puts Sammy in check about his ways. 

I won't give away any more but this movie is worth a bag of microwave popcorn.
