4.0 out of 5 stars Solid little film that rises above its exploitation roots July 28 2011
By DVD Verdict - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Judge Tom Becker, DVD Verdict-- Streetwalkin' is a strange little soup. In its opening minutes, it seems fairly clear that we're headed for Cautionary Tale territory, with the naïve and fragile runaways seduced by the sinister Duke. The credits roll--with shots of the old, sleazy, and sometimes missed mid-80's Times Square while the hard-soul bit of '80s funk of a theme song plays--and we're certain that the next scene will be of poor Cookie being coerced into some bit of sexual degradation by the now-revealed-villainous Duke.

But no. Cookie's OK strolling the Minnesota Strip and acting like head cheerleader to Duke's football hero. She's taken on the "mom" role with Tim; the other working girls and street denizens form a scuzzy, yet functional, community. Street life is just shown as another way of life, and director and co-writer Joan Freeman takes a refreshingly nonjudgmental approach to the subject.

Freeman and company get a lot right here. The low budget--this is from Roger Corman's Concorde Films--meant that the crew couldn't build sets and had to shoot in real locations; thus, the gritty mid-80s Times Square/42nd Street milieu is front and center, making the film an authentic snapshot of scuzzy times gone by. While some of the sex-for-cash scenes are played kind of for laughs, there's nothing outrageous or ridiculous about them. It's edgy as opposed to exciting, more frank than sensationalized, though the requisite violence and nudity are there. Save for the pre-credit sequence in the bus station, the entire film takes place over the course of one night, making it sort of a Hooker Graffiti.

The thriller aspect is what keeps the film moving, but the well-developed characters make it interesting. Almost all the main actors went on to successful careers, a rarity in exploitation films; not surprisingly, then, the performances are quite good.

The disc, from Shout! Factory, offers up a decent anamorphic transfer but a kind of weak stereo audio track. As a supplement, there's a commentary from Freeman and producer and co-writer Robert Alden, who is also Freeman's husband.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Don't Make 'em Like This Anymore! Jan. 23 2007
By Mr Doug Gordon - Published on Amazon.com

I was lucky to find a new-sealed version of this movie a couple of years back. I originally saw this flick back in 1986 at the drive-in, but it was originally released in 1984. The plot consists of a chararacter, by the name of "Cookie", who runs away from home with her younger Brother. When she meets a pimp named "Duke", her life unravels on the meanstreets of New York. It's directed by Roger Corman, and also stars Julie Newmar of "Batman" fame, and a very young Leon from "Waiting To Exhale"-all in his jheri-curl glory! I have the R-rated version, which is pretty violent in itself. Although the plot utilizes the usual formula for this type of movie, it sure delivers and will not disappoint any fan of this genre. If you like past movies released on TV and Theatrically like "Dawn:Portrait Of A Teenage Runaway"('76), "Little Ladies Of The Night"('77), "Off The Minnesota Strip"('79), "Vice Squad"('82), or "Angel"('84), then it's guaranteed that you will like this movie. I hope it gets released on DVD one of these days, but the Vestron VHS version looks great otherwise.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pimp Walkin' Aug. 15 2012
By Jim K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Streetwalkin' sure is an entertaining short movie and I'm glad that I purchased it. The reason that I wanted this DVD was to see the magnificent and gorgeous Julie Newmar and I was not disappointed; she is in plenty of scenes and looks fabulous!

Witnessing the DVD cover and from reading summaries of the movie, I got the impression that the film was about a runaway girl who ends up becoming a prostitute in New York City. While that does happen, the movie regrettably is more about her violent first pimp who crashes his way into just about every scene. The plot also follows this pimp character during his separate strange scenes.

The picture is not very crisp and clean but is good enough for viewing at night. It is widescreen for 16x9. Beware: this has a loud screechy soundtrack and often there are annoying clicks and pops that mostly come from the right speaker but there are a few on the left as well. But you sure can hear everything.

The music selections are quite good and are songs that I've never heard of... I may look into purchasing some of them.

All-in-all I give it 3 stars. Two stars only for overall DVD quality and an extra star for nice-looking, scantily-clad women.

Not a bad picture over all, the girl is a bit naive to believe that her pimp loves her.
Julie Newmar is hot as a hooker.

Melissa DeLeo's wonderful teenage boobs. She plays the part of a deservedly successful hooker and I'm sure this led to subsequent Academy Award. Buy it.
