Though Robert Davi is best known for his lengthy acting career, but his recent professional singing career has garnered him much acclaim, especially for his first album “Davi Sings Sinatra — On The Road To Romance,” which placed at #6 on the Billboard Jazz charts. Now, a new comedic and poignant documentary “Davi’s Way” follows Davi on his quest to honor Sinatra on his 100th birthday by meticulously recreating his historic “Main Event” concert at Madison Square Garden. In the vein of “This Is Spinal Tap” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Davi and his assistant must frantically prepare for the night in question. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
The film is directed by Tom Donahue, who previously directed documentaries such as “Casting By,” which tells the story of legendary casting director Marion Doherty, and “Thank You for Your Service,” about the mental health crisis facing veterans today.
Some of Davi’s most recognized acting roles are as Jake Fratelli in “The Goonies,” FBI Special Agent Big Johnson in “Die Hard,” Bond villain Franz Sanchez in “Licence to Kill” and strip club manager Al Torres in “Showgirls.”
“Davi’s Way” made its world premiere at the Hamptons Film Festival, which ran from October 6 through 10.
