In above 2 minute video Sammy Davis Jr. tells the true story. Or read text below.
Did you see The Adventurers based on the Harold Robbins novel? The lead character, Dax Xenos, was based on real life European playboy Porfirio Rubirosa.
According to Sammy Davis Jr's auto-biography, Sammy once asked him:
"How do you do it, Rubi? You attend every party, play polo, date women, go yachting, day after day, yet you always look good and never tired?"
"What I do Sammy, is pace myself. I never go to a party too early or stay too late. I drink only a little and watch what I eat. And even if I'm entertaining a woman, I always get my sleep."
This is great advice for anyone wanting to live the James Bond Lifestyle. On films I've directed, the amateurs party every night and are zombies by the second week. The professionals are fresh, energetic and prepared everyday. Why? They pace themselves. They sleep.
When Clint Eastwood started preparing to direct his first movie, Play Misty for Me, he asked vetren director Don Dirty Harry Seigal for advice.
Seigal gave him only, "Get a lot of sleep."
