A tribute to one of last Century's finest entertainers
4 January 2006 | by AetherDwellerSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this when it aired, I was in high school and very active in theater. To see all these entertainers honor one of their own with such sincerity was really touching. There is one particular moment when Gregory Hines finishes a tap sequence and jumps off the stage, bends down and kisses Sammy's shoes. One of the most incredible moments I have ever witnessed. I'm getting misty just remembering it. Anyhow if you get a chance to see this, As I remember it was a well deserved tribute and Sammy passed away just after it was aired. Too many times we fail to recognize our beloved talents before they are gone. Luckily Sammy got to enjoy it.
