May Britt

May Britt Wilkens (born 22 March 1934) is a Swedish actress who had a brief career in the 1950s in Italy and later in the United States. She was married to Sammy Davis Jr. from 1960 to 1968.


  • At approximately 3:30 Sunday afternoon, November 13, 1960, I became the wife of famed entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. It was the final act in a chain of events which, I have been assured by some, will cost me my career, friends, security and a great deal of future happiness. Why, I have been asked, would I risk all that for this one man? The answer, to me, is very simple. I love him.
    And the only reason given me why I shouldn't marry him is because of the racial difference, which seems to be a problem here in America but not in my native Sweden. Actually, the whole of Europe looks at it through different eyes than America.
