Locations Manager(s): Lois Kramer Hartwick

American Gigolo Filming Locations:

The opening is of Richard Gere driving his 450SL along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

Gere first meets Lauren Hutton's character at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Gere's apartment/hotel was supposed to be Wilshire blvd in Westwood, but was actually in the Sunset Plaza section of West Hollywood.

Much of the action is centered around then-trendy Westwood Village.

He meets his female pimp (and later Lauren Hutton) at Perino's

The gay bar he visits was Probe on LaBrea Avenue, an actual gay bar.

[Thanks to Tom for all the above locations info]

200 Hamilton Ave at the corner of Wilshire where julian sought to find Leon. He pulls up at the bar/night club and asks the door man if he has seen leon. I believe the red lights at the club say "Hamilton's" or something like that. [Thanks to Alec]

LX Preview

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!

Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
