Sleazy atmosphere prevails with Fonda and Capucine as brothel babes.

This lurid, intense drams is pseudo Tennessee Williams, about a Texas drifer and desperate women in his life, but it shows Stanwyck as a lesbian (one of Hollywood's first) and signs of Jane Fonda's talent

Audience Reviews for Walk on the Wild Side

Lawrence Harvey plays a good-natured gentleman idiot hayseed looking for his ex in 30s New Orleans only to find out she became a whore. Harvey's accent is kind of forced, Capucine as usual relies too much on her looks and Barbara Stanwyck plays her later era typical brassy old broad role--with the exception of her character being gay. The only standout is a young Jane Fonda who was as every bit good as she was foxy. Although she's got maybe 20 minutes of screen time Walk on the Wild Side is totally worth it for her.
