“The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” quotes(1982)
Plot – In the suburb of a quiet Texas town, the "Chicken Ranch" has been working for over 150 years. It's a brothel where entire generations of guys have started their sexual experiences. Sheriff Ed Earl Dodd turns a blind eye because the Chicken Ranch is considered like an institution, until Martin Thorpe comes to town. He's a journalist called the "watchdog" because of his moralizing campaigns and he starts a fierce battle with the sheriff. The officer loses and the Governor has to close the Ranch as the journalist has recorded in fact unequivocal footages and a senator has been caught too into the brothel. Ed has to tell the decision to Miss Moona, the house's mistress and his lover. In the end, they get married and the honest Sheriff becomes the Governor.
