Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing…and Sammy Davis Jr.?!

The first thing that crossed my mind when I saw this photo besides “This is the best behind the scenes photo in history!” is “When did Sammy Davis Jr. hang out with the likes of Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing?!”

Well, it was apparently on the set of 1970’s One More Time, a film directed by Jerry Lewis and reuniting Davis and Peter Lawford again after their 1968 film Salt and Pepper. By watching the trailer below it definitely seems like the entire cast and crew downed at least 15 double espressos before they filmed each scene.

A big thanks to the Awesome People Hanging Out Together Tumblr for the behind the scenes photo you see up top.
