Summary
An illuminating and provocative drama. Sultry siren Eartha Kitt is vibrantly sexy as a lascivious lady of the night, and cool cat Sammy Davis Jr. displays tremendous appeal and power in this torrid tale of love and greed. When wild child Anna Lucasta is thrown out of the house by her self-righteous father, she falls into the life of prostitution, and the arms of streetwise sailor Danny Johnson. 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
