With this stylish, sexually charged thriller Richard Gere launched a career as a leading man in Hollywood, playing Julian Kaye—a charming high-priced companion. Speaking multiple languages, he’s an escort equally comfortable as your chauffeur, or simply your date for the night. But trouble finds the American Gigolo in the form of a femme fatale, and his risky romantic involvement to a politician's wife quickly escalates to becoming a prime suspect in a murder case.
