3 things about Edward Dmytryk’s WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

Walk on the Wild Side [1962]

1. “Imagine, an innocent person walking–”
“And of course you make your living by walking.”
2. The way she lights her cigarette with infinite laziness and then disdainfully throws away the match.
3. He wheels himself up to Dove and then gut-punches him savagely.

This doesn’t get enough respect. It’s got butch Barbara Stanwyck, Jane Fonda as a good time gal from Paducah, chili cookin’ Anne Baxter, cool/hot Capucine, Saul Bass’ black cat title sequence & Elmer B.’s powerhouse theme. For starters.
