Plastic Eyeball Debut


Via the JET magazine archives, here's the photo run by the mag to let everyone know about Sammy Davis Jr's new eyeball in June, 1955.  For the search engines:

"Sammy Davis Jr. Doffs Eyepatch: Removing his now-famous eye patch for the opening performance at Las Vegas' New Frontier Hotel, entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. unveils his new plastic left eye for the scrutiny of his uncle, Will Mastin.  Sammy lost his eye in California auto crash."
