Just A Gigolo

1h 45m Drama 1978

A war hero returns to Berlin to find that there's no place for him and in need of work, decides to become a gigolo to lonely rich widows.

This offbeat German melodrama directed by David Hemmings stars David Bowie as Paul, a young Prussian War veteran who returns home to Berlin after World War I. After drifting from job to job, Paul eventually finds his niche renting himself out as a dancer for war widows who long to forget their sadness. Kim Novak sizzles as a sad widow, with German bombshell Maria Schell as Paul’s mother and Sydne Rome as his old sweetheart-turned-cabaret singer. Marlene Dietrich makes a poignant cameo (in her last film role) as an aging baroness, singing the title song, aka Schoner Gigolo, armer Gigolo.
