The story is set in New York City, but the film was actually shot in Atlanta. In one street scene, a very distinctive MARTA bus passes in the background. MARTA is the mass transit authority of Atlanta. See more »

Dull
25 August 2001 | by sundar-2See all my reviews

"Mayflower Madam" is a dull, insipid film about Sidney Biddle Barrows who ran a high-class call-girl ring in 1980s New York. The book by Barrows, on which this movie is based, is far more interesting because it tells the tale of how a well-bred WASP got into the escort service business. The book is prurient and titillating without being offensive. The movie is merely boring. Candice Bergen is miscast as the Mayflower Madam.
