"Past Catches Up" from Anna Lucasta
1958. Sammy Davis Jr. as Danny Johnson surprises a newly married Eartha Kitt as Anna Lucasta, who cannot believe she has fallen in love with a farmer for real, and who tries to get her to come back to him, but she refuses, even as he tells her the truth about her. Finally, Danny decides to go and leave her be when Rex Ingram as Joe Lucasta comes and recognizes Danny, then tells Anna that he fixed it so her new husband does not get the new job he came up for, and that all she deserves is unhappiness, even on her wedding day. Danny then takes the distraught Anna away, and Joe destroys her wedding cake. 


"Chantez La Bas" from St. Louis Blues
1958. Eartha Kitt as Gogo Germaine finishes a set and sits with her boss and boyfriend, Cab Calloway as Blade, when she hears music from outside.
