Product Description

Disc 1: The Happy Hooker P&S

Disc 2 Side A: The Happy Hooker Goes to Washington WS Disc 2 Side B: The Happy Hooker Goes to Hollywood WS

Amazon.com

You may hate yourself in the morning, but from the funky '70s fashions to a whirlpool sex scene with Adam West (holy career nadir, Batman!), this Happy Hooker three-way is B-movie bliss! Georgy Girl turns call girl in The Happy Hooker (1975). Lynn Redgrave stars as Xavier Hollander, the plucky and cheerfully independent madam whose 1971 autobiography sold a staggering 17 million copies. The series takes a brisk, burlesque turn in The Happy Hooker Goes to Washington (1977), starring Joey Heatheron (that's more like it) as Xavier, "an honest hooker looking for a little peace" who is subpoenaed to appear before the Senate Select Committee on Sexual Excess in America in the wake of congressional sexual scandals. In The Happy Hooker Goes Hollywood (1980), a Hollywood producer (West) does to Xavier (Martine Beswick this time) what she does to her clients, and she takes revenge by forming her own production company to bring her life story to the screen. Anyone seeking serious softcore will not be happy with Hooker--these films are more comic than carnal. But if you have a fetish for slumming character actors and comedians, this trilogy amply delivers. Washington features Joe E. Ross (the "ooh-ooh" guy from Car 54, Where Are You?), Ray Walston (My Favorite Martian), comedian Phil Foster, Larry Storch (F-Troop), David White (Larry Tate on Bewitched), flamboyant entertainer Rip Taylor, Billy Barty doing an unaccountable James Cagney imitation, and even "Cheswick" from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest as a network television censor. In addition to West, Hollywood features Richard Deacon (Mel Cooley on The Dick Van Dyke Show), Edie Adams as herself, Phil Silvers as a wheelchair-bound unscrupulous movie tycoon, and incomparable cult-fave Dick Miller (A Bucket of Blood) as one of Xavier's customers. Pleasures come no guiltier than these relics from a more sexually libertine time. --Donald Liebenson

Joey Heatherton, Martine Beswick, Lynn Redgrave, Adam West and Larry Storch - How can you possibly go wrong with 70's camp of these colossal proportions? Well, somehow it's wrong on EVERY level. Three horrible movies, painfully bad acting, no storylines to speak of, nothing at all to do with the best-selling books, the worst of 70's fashion style, no comedy, no drama, no camp value, and the greatest travesty - no real sex or nudity to keep you in your chair! WTF! I have a high tolerance for the ridiculous, and even I fast-forwarded through all three flicks in spite of loving Joey Heatherton and Martine Beswick. Insulting on every level - avoid this collection of garish crap at all costs.

This is not nearly as fun as "The Happy Hooker Goes to Washington". This is a minimally entertaining sitcom-like biography of Xaviera Hollander similar to the Brady Bunch to dumb down the humor.

In the early to mid-1970's a novel hit the best sellers list called "The Happy Hooker." It was an autobiography written by Xaviara Hollander in the 1970s and was published by Dell Publications. It became a Number One Best Seller. The Happy Hooker: My Own Story

Xaviara Hollander came from Holland. She was the daughter of a doctor. For a time when she first came to the United Stes, she was working as a translator for the United Nations in New York City.

She had been through some failed relationships and soon found herself self-employed and later running a luctrative escort service eventually having a serice on Park Avenue in New York City in the late 1970's.

She had hired a technician to install a series of hidden cameras in the various rooms of her establishment so she can monitor as to what was going on in the rooms in case something should go wrong between the girls and the customers requiring her to intervene.

Unknown to Xaviara Hollander, the technician, however, had installed a transmiter in the cameras so that he could pick up on the transmissions and look in on what was going on.

Thigs backfired as the TV sets of the people in the area were also picking up on the transmissions on the UHF fequency.

Teh police received a number of complaints and located the source of the transmissions. The New York Police Department then raided the establishment of Xaviera Hollander. She later was even deported from theUnited States since she was not a citizen.

This made the media, and as a result, Xaviera Halander wrote a book which was published by Dell Publications in the 1970's and became a Number One Best Seller.

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Andrew J Bergen on April 29, 2002
Format: VHS Tape
This movie was a story about a woman who breaks up with her fiance and finds herself in an American city sleeping with many different men. She deciedes instead of doing it for free she should start charging for her services. She eventually becomes a madame and ends up in jail. This is the basis premise for the movie. There is not much else to this movie. I found it to be funny. It was not meant to be a comedy. I think it was made in the seventies. It has all sorts of cheese ball outfits. It is the perfect stereotype of a bad 1970 era movie. The style reminds me of Shaft.
