Trivia

Valerie Perrine sought the lead role of Xaviera Hollander however the United Artists movie studio felt Perrine should not do this movie as it would distract attention away from her performance in Lenny (1974) which could get her an Academy Award nomination. Perrine did get Oscar nominated as Best Actress in a Leading Role for Lenny (1974). See more »

Tame and lame "adult" comedy based upon the 70's most famous madam!
21 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

The Happy Hooker (1975) was loosely based upon the best seller about of the era's most popular and successful madam's. Lynn Redgrave stars as the happy one. But the film is just bad in all aspects. It fails at being an "adult" comedy and it fails at being a biography. I wouldn't even catagorize it in the "trying too hard" section because it didn't even do that. Boring stuff that deserves to be buried. May it never see the light of day. By the way, this movie ruined my tastes for sundaes and banana splits. Don't watch this one. The sequels are a lot better than this one. That's not saying much either because they're both bad.

Followed by "Happy Hooker Goes to Washington" and "Happy Hooker Goes to Hollywood". Too tame and way too lame.

Not recommended.
