Star Studded Drama!
Academy Award winner Jane Fonda (Best Actress in a Leading Role, Coming Home, 1978, and Klute 1971), Laurence Harvey, Barbara Stanwyck and Capucine give exceptional performances in this lurid drama of love and lust set in New Orleans during the thirties. The story centers around Dove Linkhorn (Harvey), a down-to-earth, good-natured man who trainhops from Texas to Louisiana with runaway Kitty Twist (Fonda) in search of his love Hallie (Capucine). Once in New Orleans, Dove makes a monumental effort to find Hallie, a sophisticated, soft-spoken artist, but is devastated to learn that she has been reduced to working in the "Doll House," a high-society brothel run by ruthless madam Jo Courtney (Stanwyck). When Dove tries to take Hallie away from the "Doll House," he finds himself fighting for his life against brothel thugs and the jealous Jo, who wants Hallie for herself. Supported by an Oscar-nominated title song (Best Music, Song, 1962, "Walk on the Wild Side"), Walk on the Wild Side is a provocative film that paints a fascinating, emotion-packed portrait of human nature.
