We get a glimpse at the dark side of Miami, as we follow Rome on the case. Sinatra pulls it off pretty well, without being too cute. The plot is not predictable, and requires that you pay attention. Violent at times, but not gratuitously so.
Gena Rowlands appears as Klosterman's wife. Jill St. John looks good, but her performance never rings true. Ex-boxer Rocky Graziano makes a cameo, and Deanna Lund, from TV's Land of the Giants, also briefly appears. Billy May's musical score sounds like it was lifted from the 60's TV series, Batman. And Frank's daughter Nancy, sings Lee Hazelwood's corny title song to the movie.
A good piece from the period, that doesn't stray too far from reality or sink into excess. Worth seeing for the story. Sinatra would reprise his role as Tony Rome for a sequel, "Lady In Cement".
I detected no digital flaws. A very sharp, nice transfer "Tony Rome" looks really good on DVD with some minor analog flaws that crop up from time to time in the form of film splotches found, no doubt, on the original negative. The mono sound comes across with nice presence and the dialog is crisp and clear throughout.
We get trailers for a variety of Fox films from the 1960's. My favorite is for one horror of the 60's "Fathom" and a interesting formula western "Bandolero!" both featuring Raquel Welch. The latter film is memorable for Jimmy Stewart and Dean Martin who appear as brothers(!) in the film. There's also Raquel Welch in the "Fantastic Voyage" and other interesting trailers.
A solid, fun mystery with a memorable cynical performance by Sinatra, "Tony Rome" still packs a punch. It's a great 60's detective flick and overcomes its dated trappings with a smart, witty script.
Thirty years and counting and this one hasn't lost any of its appeal.
Sinatra wasn't my favorite movie star but sometimes I get a hankering to see one of his old movies. This one is pretty good and just the way I remember it from when I first saw it.
The action is little slow, but the plot is "intricate" enough to keep you guessing.
Jill St. John provides the "female" interest, looking great, as usual.
If you like Frank as a detective, and you enjoy "quick dialog", (you have to listen closely to get the best impact), you will enjoy this a lot.

The behind-the-scenes action of some of the big city life of prominent people brought to life in color with Frank Sinatra leading the show. Jill St. John is lovely and marvelous.Published 3 months ago by 00xuser
