Hustling (1975)

"Based on Gail Sheehy's book, 'Hustling' made prostitutes the sympathetic center of a story that presented the issue of sex-for-pay as a social problem with no easy solution. Shot for gritty authenticity on the streets of New York, 'Hustling' questioned who were the true lawbreakers in what is revealed to be a $7-billion-a-year business.

"Lee Remick stars as magazine writer Fran Morrison, a thinly disguised representation of Sheehy herself, who, while attending a public hearing on prostitution in midtown Manhattan, is inspired to write a series of articles on the subject, which she bases on face-to-face interviews with the hookers."
