About The Film

(1958) Anna Lucasta features a young Eartha Kitt. When wild child, Anna, is banished from the family home by her self-righteous father, she falls into a life of prostitution and into the arms of street-wise sailor, Danny Johnson (played by Sammy Davis, Jr.). Anna shocks everyone by 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 destroys her future forever.
