Sammy Davis Jr. and John Wayne. For the movie Sergeants 3, John Wayne loaned Sammy Davis Jr. his treasured hat that he had worn in John Ford’s Cavalry Trilogy and Rio Bravo amongst other movies. Even with extra padding the hat still fit Sammy loosely. By the time Wayne got the hat back it was badly worn and he threw it away.
