It’s Happy Hooker Night!

The most famous madame of “the world’s oldest profession” will be Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival’s special guest Monday night. This author, Penthouse columnist, performer, and raconteur is Xaviera Hollander. Her new documentary, Xaviera Hollander, the Happy Hooker: Portrait of a Sexual Revolutionary, will air at 8:15, followed by a discussion about her life at 9:15 and a signing of her book The Happy Hooker: My Own Story at 10. Also being shown is The Happy Hooker, an adaptation of Hollander’s autobiographical novel detailing how the Dutch gal moved to New York, took an office job, then transformed it into a call-girl business. (Talk about working overtime!) The Happy Hooker begins at 6:30 p.m. at Cinema Paradiso (503 SE Sixth St., Fort Lauderdale.) Tickets cost $15 for the entire evening.
