"In ANNA LUCASTA, Eartha Kitt is the real prize."
USA Today - 02/01/2005
"[Kitt] could really act, and her speaking voice replicated her musical voice more than almost any other singer."
Eartha Kitt portrays Anna, a prostitute who'd been ejected from her family's house by her pious father, until the family decides to bring her back, marry her off to a wealthy man unaware of her past, and swindle him out of his money. Anna unexpectedly falls for her new husband, which derails the family's plan until a savvy sailor from her past, played by Sammy Davis, Jr., arrives to destroy the marriage.
