Movie Review by Derringer
May 28th, 2009

YOUR ODDS OF GETTING INTO HEAVEN ARE 6 TO 1

Favorite Movie Quote: "You know, 'smart' from books ain't so smart."

Ah! - Young Love and Candy Kisses.

Released in 1962 - WALK ON THE WILD SIDE (WOTWS) may not be very 'wild' when judged by the jaded standards of today, but, all the same, it is a damn-good drama with an excellent cast, which includes the likes of LAURENCE HARVEY, JANE FONDA, CAPUCINE, and BARBARA STANWYCK.

This is a lurid drama about love and lust. It is set in New Orleans during the 1930's, but, in reality, it definitely feels more like the 50's.

The story centers around Dove Linkhorn, a down-to-earth, good-natured, young man who trainhops it from Texas to Louisiana (with runaway Kitty Twist) in search of a woman named Hallie Gerrard, who loved him and left him 3 years earlier.

Dove makes a monumental effort to find Hallie, an attractive, soft-spoken artist. But soon the devastating truth comes out as Dove quickly learns that Hallie has been reduced to working in the 'Doll House', a high-society brothel run by the ruthless madam, Jo Courtney.

With eyes wide shut Dove naively attempts to take Hallie away from this sordid lifestyle. But before he even knows what hit him, he finds himself fighting for his own life against brothel thugs and the jealous, lesbian Jo, who wants Hallie all for her piggish self.

Surprisingly enough, WOTWS is a truly provocative film that paints a fascinating, emotionally-packed portrait of human nature.

So - Hey, Babe! Take A Walk On The Wild Side!
