First of all, I was shocked to find that you could actually purchase this DVD. This is an old film, but old enough that the innuendoes are still there; not a lot is spelled out.

New Orleans is the setting, but you'd never know it as most of the shots are interior. The psychology is amazing, though, and you'll find yourself completely wrapped up in the story.

For those not interested in the lesbian overtones, the prostitution themes alone will suffice. Jane Fonda is amazing and in fact, did an amazing thing by being in this movie. Even today, anyone who would dare to make something that would equal the lines of "Walk" by today's standards would be taking a chance with their career.

Laurence Harvey, Capucine, and Annex Baxter (!!!!!) make excellent appearances in this highly unusual film.

I would also suggest another movie, titled "The Killing of Sister George" which is along the same lines. It's a tad long but made about the same time and every bit as good. It deals with lesbianism and is shocking not in this fact, but because the main character so does not care who knows it in the 1960s setting. I highly recommend both films.

"A Walk on the Wild Side" is a well made, intriguing soap opera set in sultry, steamy New Orleans. When the audience sees the opening credit sequence in which a sensuous black cat is photographed in closeup as it prowls along sidewalks and alleys of the Big Easy, viewers are hooked. This startling and ingenious introduction as well as the juicy end credit sequence were conceived by the brilliantly inventive graphic artist Saul Bass.
The rather sordid plot revolves around a good-looking Texas drifter named Dove, superbly underplayed by Laurence Harvey, who hitchhikes his way to New Orleans in search of his long lost love, Hallie. Hallie is portrayed by the elegant and ravishing Capucine. (Capucine bears an uncanny resemblance to both Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn. No wonder everyone was crazy about her!) Enroute to the Big Easy, Dove encounters a runaway juvenile delinquent, Kitty, performed with sass and vigor by Jane Fonda. She tags along with Dove until he leaves her behind after he discovers that she is a thief and a liar.
Following an anonymous tip, Dove locates Hallie who is living and working in a high-class brothel. At first he does not realize that she has followed a primrose path. When he does find out, he is understandably shocked. Eventually he forgives her and proposes marriage. Complications and tragedy follow.
The cast of " A Walk on the Wild Side" are uniformly excellent. Barbara Stanwyck is especially memorable. She gives a fearless, ferocious performance as the calculating, possessive lesbian madam, Jo, who is hopelessly infatuated with Hallie. Other palatable ingredients in this movie: the solid direction by Edward Dmytryk; the crisp, evocative black and white photography of Joe MacDonald; and the bold, brash jazz score composed by the great Elmer Bernstein.
No it's not Shakespeare, but "A Walk on the Wild Side" is a very watchable, well-crafted, guilty pleasure.

Last evening, I skipped the traditional televised holiday fare and watched Edward Dmytryk's "Walk On The Wild Side" (Columbia Pictures, 1962). Let's just say that the next time you're having friends over for melba toast and you're looking for the perfect over-the-top extravaganza to project on to the living room wall, this should be the featured attraction. Barbara Stanwyck is the lesbian owner of a New Orleans brothel known as "The Doll House." Glamorous Capucine (a 60's version of Garbo)is the most popular call girl since Holly Golightly and coveted by both her butch madame and a drifter named Dove (not kidding) played by the inscrutable Laurence Harvey. Add a youthful Jane Fonda (in her bulimic period) and a miscast Anne Baxter as a Mexican diner owner (cascading dark wig, inauthentic accent and all) and you've got one mesmerically curious flick. Oh, did I forget to mention that the entire thing kicks off with a title sequence in which two felines (one black, one white) engage in a vicious catfight punctuated by Elmer Bernstein's pulsating jazz score? Meow! They sure as hell don't make e'm like this anymore! - Mark Griffin ("Genre" Magazine)

This cinematic adaption of Nelson Algren 1930's New Orleans classic novel suffers by the dated censorship of the early 1960's, given its content love, morals and prositution, it needs the free rein of the post 1970 era to achieve its full impact. Laurence Harvey, gifted, elegant, articulate (Hebraic and English/Luithanian) is miscast a bit and asked to play a Texas farmer of high morals seeking lost love in a den of iniquity, the Big Easy, encounters beauty after beauty who adore and want him whom he spurns for his lost love! The beauties are respectively, Jane Fonda, Anne Baxter, Jo Anna Moore and all for the love of the abstract remote and cold Capucine! Brook Benton title song is classic and the direction excellent, Barbara Stanwyck leads the cast of villans who are all superb. Only the censors and the extreme reach called for by Mr. Harvey are the only flaws here. In all his other roles, Mr. Harvey is superb, alas,he died too soon, of cancer.
