Plot summary[edit]

IMDb confirms my recollection that

Hallie is the main attraction both for clients and for Jo, the madame.

In fact, in my mind the lesbian aspect was the crucial plot turn, and i think he realizes, when he sees them kissing, either

that his love is no incentive for her to accept rescue by him, or
that her departure from strict heterosexuality makes her unworthy in his mind, in a way that her prostitution did not.

Fair use rationale for Image:NelsonAlgren AWalkOnTheWildSide.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:NelsonAlgren AWalkOnTheWildSide.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 23:19, 5 June 2007 (UTC)
