Trivia

Lynn Redgrave wasn't the first choice to play Xaviera Hollander. This was because she was working full-time on a Broadway play "My Fat Friend" during much of 1974. Redgrave actually worked concurrently on both this movie and the play at the same time. Redgrave once said: "I go on with the movie usually until the absolute last possible minute and usually go right from the set to the theater. And both parts are non-stop." See more »

Quotes

The Leader: [confronting Xaviera in a female prison cell] Hey, big shit madame bitch. Bet you ain't got no black ass turning tricks in your high-class fuckin' house.
Cowgirl: Oh, she afraid the black's gonna rub off all over her beautiful white sheets, ain't ya, honey?

A very tame adult comedy
5 October 2000 | by (West Bromwich, England) – See all my reviews

A very tame adult comedy that despite its title and its somewhat of a cult reputation does not contain any sex whatsoever (unless I missed something). There was an opportunity here to create a seriously dirty film but you get the sense that the makers were to gutless to take the chance. Instead all you are left with is a mildly amusing comedy where the most explicit image is Lynn Redgrave in her panties. A disappointment.
