Storyline

Tony Rome is an ex-cop turned private eye in Miami Beach. For $200 he returns a young woman to her father's house after she passes out in a seedy hotel, and he keeps the hotel's name out of it. Trouble is, she's missing a diamond pin, and tough guys show up at Tony's boat looking for it. When the pin does turn up, it's fake, so the girl's father, a wealthy builder, hires Tony to find out what happened to the real stones. Bodies pile up, Tony suspects the builder's trophy wife, and he's also looking for a mysterious guy named Nimmo who used to date Ann Archer, a stunning redhead Tony meets at the builder's. Can Tony sort it out before too many die, and what about Ann? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Lots of Twists--Lots of Fun
15 May 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The Maltese Falcon is alive! Frank Sinatra is every bit the hard P.I. that Humphrey Bogart was as Sam Slade. What adds to the movie is the Miami background of the 1960's. One of the great things about old movies is when they are set in the same time frame as when the movie is being filmed. You get a chance to see life at that point in time.

The case involves a stolen diamond bracelet and Tony Rome is hired to find it. Tracking it down involves people of all walks of life, from the rich to those who want to be and those that aren't. Yet everyone is involved with the missing bracelet. Many twists and turns that come together neatly in the end. This was a movie that I thought got better as it went. This one is worth seeing again.
