In the film, Julian (Richard Gere) is the pimp for Anne (Nina van Pallandt). In real life, Pallandt was romantically involved with writer Clifford Irving during the late 1960s and early 1970s. In 2006, Gere would portray Irving in the movie The Hoax (2006), with Julie Delpy portraying Pallandt.
The movie's main theme song "Call Me" sung by Deborah Harry & Blondie was a massive hit and went to No #1 in both the UK and USA, staying on the latter for six weeks. The song was the fourth No. #1 single in the UK in just over a year for band Blondie and Deborah Harry. The track was also the No #1 single on Billboard Magazine's end of 1980 year chart. The song is ranked as No #283 on Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and No #44 on Billboard's All Time Top 100.
Soundtrack producer Giorgio Moroder originally asked Fleetwood Mac's Steve Nicks to compose, sing and record the main title song for this picture but Nicks had to turn down the offer as a then new contract with Modern Records blocked her from working with Moroder.
When Julian is tearing his Mercedes apart to locate the stolen jewels, he is seen pulling the plastic off the driver's door to get a torch. He pulls the plastic right off the door, but shortly after that, the plastic is on the door.
When Julian Kay is talking on the phone to Jill to see if he has any messages, he is told that Michelle has left him one, shortly after that, he says to Jill "Tell her to meet me at Perinos," but instead of telling Jill to let Michelle know what to time to meet him there, he puts the phone down.
After he had been framed for the Rheiman murder and theft of the jewels then why didn't Julian just go to Det. Sunday for help?
Detective Sunday had already pointed the finger at Kaye for both crimes and even though he wasn't under arrest, he certainly was a major person of interest as far as the police were concerned. And even if Julian had voluntarily went to seek help from the detective well there was the huge risk of him being arrested and jailed. As it stood there were no other suspects being questioned so Julian most likely would have faced charges for two crimes which he was innocent of having committed.
During Julian's visit with Anne why didn't he take up the offer to join her girls outside in the sun?
That's because Julian Kaye had no interest in young women since he'd been trained by Anne to satisfy older, mature age female clients. During his visit to Anne she suggested that the girls would've enjoyed his company
though the two ladies in his mind were too young and uninteresting. Therefore he said, "no way" to her offer to be with her girls. Julian enjoyed mature women because they made him feel appreciated and they paid well for his services. Plus older women had maturity and sophistication which to him the younger women lacked.
