Mayflower Madam

Mayflower Madam

Lou Antonio (1987)

18 Certificate


Our Score
This fact-based TV movie wastes the talents of lead actress Candice Bergen. She plays Sydney Biddle Barrows, a debutante descended from America's founding fathers (and mothers) and so thought of as an aristocrat, who ended up running a high-class "escort service of fantasy girls" and made headlines for over a year in the 1980s. The real-life Barrows turns up in a cameo role, but there's little else of interest.


Fact-based drama based on the life of former debutante Sydney Biddle Barrows, a descendent of the Mayflower pilgrims, who became notorious as the proprietor of a high-class New York escort agency. Candice Bergen, Chris Sarandon and Chita Rivera star.
