Anna Lucasta is an illuminating and provocative drama directed by Arnold Laven (Rough Night in Jericho) and written by legendary screenwriter Philip Yordan (The Big Combo). Sultry siren Eartha Kitt (St. Louis Blues) is vibrantly sexy as a lascivious lady of the night, and cool cat Sammy Davis Jr. (A Man Called Adam) displays tremendous appeal and power in this torrid tale of love and greed. When wild child Anna Lucasta (Kitt) is thrown out of the house by her self-righteous father, she falls into the life of prostitution... and into the arms of street-wise sailor Danny Johnson (Davis). 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.
