A Los Angeles male escort, who mostly caters to an older female clientèle, is accused of a murder which he did not commit.
Julie Christie originally was to play the role of the politician's wife when Richard Gere was first attached to the project, but she backed out when Gere was replaced by John Travolta. Travolta later dropped out and Gere was hired for the film, but Christie was not offered the role that was eventually played by Lauren Hutton.
How many languages do you speak?
Julian Kaye: Five or six.
Michelle Stratton: Plus the, uh, international language?
Julian Kaye: That's right.
When Julian and Michelle are having a conversation at his apartment, he tells her about the Palm Springs murder he is being framed for. He tells her that it took place a couple of weeks ago. A short time later, she asks him when the murder took place, he tells her it was a week ago Tuesday. This is duplicated later on by Charles (The Senator) when he's talking to Julian, but the Tuesday part is omitted.
ABC edited 21 minutes from this film for its 1983 network television premiere.
