XAVIERA HOLLANDER, "THE HAPPY HOOKER": PORTRAIT OF A
SEXUAL REVOLUTIONARY is a documentary about one of the world's most
important sexual icons. The film reveals the woman behind the legend who
became the most famous madam of all time. Interviews with Larry King and
commentary from America's foremost sexologists explore Xaviera's rise and fall as
a madam, her deportation from the United States and her political significance to
the Feminist Movement and Sexual Revolution of the 1970's.
"What becomes an erotic legend most? Longevity. Sex symbols have
notoriously short shelf lives, and the few that endure loom large in our
pop-culture consciousness: Liz, Marilyn, Madonna. In an age of fleeting
sexperts and flavor-of-the-month pornoqueens, it's nothing short of
remarkable that after 30 years Xaviera Hollander is still a household name."
