In this highly fictionalized take on the Hollywood legend, immigrant Rudolph Valentino (Rudolf Nureyev) begins his stay in the United States humbly, working for minimum wage before becoming a New York City gigolo. He then makes his way to California, where his good looks allow him to seduce respected actresses. Eventually, his famous lovers help him become a leading man, and he quickly ascends to stardom. But he cannot escape the media's questions about his past and his sexuality.
