Originally acquired at the "Butterfield & Butterfield" estate auction in
1991 by a collector, the estate was later featured on the History Channel.
The individual who bought the collection in 1991 sold it in 2004 to
Arthur Mrozowski, CEO of Magic Screen 3D. For many years, Arthur
searched for the perfect company to preserve this istoric collection.
The Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas considered using the collection as a
permanent display, but it shut down in 2011. After living in storage for
years, Arthur sold the collection to NanoTech Entertainment. NanoTech
Entertainment is now in the process of completing a full inventory of
the collection, with the final goal being to make the audio and video
available on all of its streaming channels.
"After a long time, we finally found the perfect home for the Sammy
Davis Jr. video library," said Mrozowski. "NanoTech has the capabilities
to convert the files, but more importantly I know they share my passion
for the collection. They will continue to preserve the legacy of Sammy
Davis, Jr. and help to re-establish visibility of these assets after
"At NanoTech, we believe in the importance of preserving the history of
this iconic entertainer," said Alex "Lx" Rudis, vice president of
product development at NanoTech Entertainment. "I have only sorted
through one case of materials, but I have already discovered Sammy
Davis, Jr.'s personal collection of Frank Sinatra tapes and an Oscar
Peterson recording. This collection truly gives you an insight into Mr.
Davis' life and by making this historic collection available on
NanoTech's channels, we are allowing it to live on for future
In addition to the 2,500 audio and videotapes, the collection also
includes two stage cases, one personal audio and video case,
reel-to-reel studio master tapes, and an 8mm personal film collection.
NanoTech Entertainment is currently exploring the possibility of doing
both a live exhibit in addition to an online exhibit.
