Anna Lucasta

Eartha Kitt and Sammy Davis, Jr. star in a much over-looked 1958 film, Anna Lucasta. The film is based on a stage play written in the early 1940s by screenwriter and producer Phillip Yordan.

When wild child Anna Lucasta (Eartha Kitt) is thrown out of the house by her self-righteous father, she falls into a life of prostitution…and into the arms of street-wise sailor Danny Johnson (Sammy Davis, Jr.). But after Anna shocks them all by finally finding true love with a well-heeled young suitor, her unforgiving father sets a vengeful plan in motion to remind his daughter of her sordid past…and destroy her future forever!
