TITLE: Lady in Cement was released in New York City on November 20, 1968. Lady In Cement is a 1968 detective film, directed by Gordon Douglas and starring Frank Sinatra, Raquel Welch, Dan Blocker, Martin Gabel and Richard Conte. A sequel to the 1967 film Tony Rome, and based on the novel by Marvin H. Albert, Lady In Cement was released on November 20th 1968.
Summary: It's a warm sunny day in Miami and Tony and a Buddy of his are on Tony's boat out in the middle of nowhere looking for treasure. Tony loses at poker so he's the one that has to put on the scuba diving gear and has to go in the water to look for the treasure. While diving off the Miami coast seeking one of the eleven fabled Spanish Galleons sunk in 1591, Private Investigator Tony Rome discovers a dead blonde, her feet encased in cement, at the bottom of the ocean. Rome reports this to Lieutenant Dave Santini (Richard Conte) and thinks little more of the incident until man-mountain Waldo Gronsky (Dan Blocker) hires him to find a missing woman, Sandra Lomax. Gronsky has little in the way of affluence, so allows Rome to pawn his watch to retain his services. After investigating the local hot spots and noticing a few names, Rome soon comes across Kit Forrester. Raquel Welch), Those party Sandra Lomax was supposed to have attended, although, Rome's talking to Forrester raises the ire of racketeer Al Munger (Martin Gabel) who looks after Kit's interests. Rome thinking there may be a connection between Lomax, Forrester and Munger, starts probing into their background, but with the omnipresent Gronski breathing down his neck, Rome find himself deep in a case that throws up very few answer
Questions: Who was the blonde-haired person in the water? Who was Kit Forrester? Who was Al Munger? What did Kit have to do with Al Munger? Why did Kit want to hire Tony? Where did Kit want him to go?
MY THOUGHTS: As far as the movie goes, this was far better than the last picture that had Raquel Welch in it. I thought that Frank Sinatra was excellent playing the role of the Private Investigator. He was pushy when he had to be and yet smart enough to get at of jams. What can you say about Raquel Welch that hasn't been said already. So was fantastic playing the role of Kip Forrest. When she walks up the ladder out of the swimming pool in that ***** ****** it just made you want to melt. You can never get enough of Raquel and she played a lot bigger role in this film then in the last one, she was in. I give this movie 10 weasel stars for two reasons. The first is because the action in this movie keeps you on the edge of your sit trying to figure out how this movie is going to finish. The second reason and the main, because of Raquel Welch. Raquel brings out the best of any movie she's stars in with her body and she's a great actress.
