With her autobiographic book ‘The Happy Hooker’ - the story of her life as New York’s most famous Madame in 1971, Xaviera Hollander became an instant best selling author. This documentary is a screened explicit rendition of her life as New York’s most famous Madame.

Following the war, Xaviera’s family moved back to Amsterdam where Xaviera was a lonely only child, always competing with her mother for the love and appreciation of her father. She even became Holland’s top secretary and soon relocated to South Africa where she met “Mr. Right” who invited her to come and live with him in New York. There she had a great but underpaid job as the secretary to the Dutch Consul. Once her relationship was over, she continued to work for the Dutch Consul but she started moonlighting as a part time hooker to compensate her meagre salary. It became a full time career which soon put her directly at the centre of a major NYPD crooked cop scandal.

She wrote the book the Happy Hooker with Robin Moore, of ‘Green Berets’ and ‘French Connection’ fame. Her book was published in 1971 and became a world wide bestseller overnight. It sold over 14 million copies world wide.

This documentary tells the haunting story of her early life in the concentration camps, her sensational blitz career from call girl to Madame, but most of all it shows how she was persecuted by the American law and became involved in one of America's most famous crime commissions. It also deals with her symbiotic relationship with her mother.


The international publicity and her involvement in the crime commission scandal instantly turned Xaviera into one of the top icons of the sexual revolution in the world. After ‘The Happy Hooker,’ she wrote another 16 autobiographic books and sex guides. She has been in a monogamous married situation with her Dutch man Philip for the last 3 years.

Her book, “The Happy Hooker,” is being turned into a musical!
Xaviera is always reinventing herself!

‘Happy Hooker’ documentary not what one might expect:

April 30, 2009 Entertainment, Movies

As far as artistic inspiration go, Xaviera Hollander presents about as broad and vibrant a muse as can be had.The legendary call girl-turned-author could fill 50 films with her X-rated exploits alone, but documentarian Robert Dunlap chose not to focus solely on that part of her life.
That’s not to say that “Portrait of a Sexual Revolutionary” lacks for ribaldry, but as far as films about the author of the largely autobiographical best-seller “The Happy Hooker” go, this is about as sterile as the subject matter could be treated.

With Hollander narrating the 68-minute film, which will be shown during the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival, the documentary goes all the way back to her infancy, which was spent in a Japanese concentration camp in southeast Asia (she and her family are of Jewish heritage).
After the war, the family returned to Holland, where she grew up (kinda) normally. She claimed the “Miss Tick” prize as Holland’s best secretary, then made her way to New York City, where she took a secretarial job that failed to offer much fulfillment.

Instead, as the title of her first book suggests, she took an unorthodox route to happiness. The film uses commentary from several of today’s leading experts and writers in the field to discuss the impact of “Happy Hooker” and the dozens of follow-up books (both fiction and fact) that came from Hollander.
Where such a field was considered beyond taboo in those days (her lawyer recalled his experiences negotiating his “first book deal in a … house of ill repute”), her work was considered a key part of the feminist movement that opened people’s minds on the subject.

The film takes the viewer up to present day, with Hollander happily pursuing her artistic endeavors back in the Netherlands — receiving inspiration the same way she inspired so many others during her life.
To be clear: This film is not for youngsters, due to subject matter and some of the imagery presented. But it’s the film’s inspiration that dictates the use of such material, and Dunlap does a masterful job of avoiding gratuitous footage or soundbites when it would have been ever-so-easy to go that way.
Whatever one might think about Hollander or her career choice, viewers of this film will leave the experience feeling as far away from dirty as possible.

What an incredibly funny show that was. It has been so long since I really had a good cry from laughing so hard. Everyone was laughing all the way down the street and it made a very Merry Christmas sound echoing through Marbella as people head off in different directions to find their cars and head home.

I could hardly look at the show for laughing and there was Ana to my left all in a ball also crying with laughter which didn't help me control mine one bit. I guess I was really suppose to whip Fifi's bum and not the floor but I was going for the real whipping sound that seemed to flop off the end of the whip. How eager I was to hear what you were going to sing and was just not prepared for anything at all so that was a double laugh when your voice sounded even more like opera than the star herself!!! For a minute I thought it was "Figaro!"

So, a good time was had by all and a very Merry Christmas of laughter.
