Synopsis by Hal Erickson
I Love You, Billy Baker was the only two-part episode of the TV series Name of the Game. Sammy Davis Jr. plays Las Vegas superstar Billy Baker, who is known far and wide for his reluctance to grant interviews. He is particularly close-mouthed on the subject of a beautiful young dancer with whom he'd once been in love--and who now is very much dead. Crime magazine reporter Jeff Dillon (Tony Franciosa) wants to know why. Before his every-man-for-himself final monologue, Davis Jr. performs several energetic musical numbers; also seen to good advantage are special guest stars Ray Charles, Ike and Tina Turner, Dionne Warwick, Marilyn Michaelsa, Redd Foxx, Jack Carter, and Norm Crosby. I Love You Billy Baker was first telecast November 20 and 27, 1970.
