THIS FILM, AND ITS PREQUEL, "TONY ROME", ARE A BIT LIKE THE T.V. SERIES "THE ROCKFORD FILES". IN FACT, I THINK THESE TWO FILMS WERE A BIG INFLUENCE ON THE PREMISE OF THAT SHOW - TIRED, BROKE, BUT HONORABLE AND STREETWISE DETECTIVE LIVES FREE-STYLE LIFE IN BOAT (INSTEAD OF TRAILER, IN "ROCKFORD"), HAS CONNECTIONS WITH THE COPS, BUT A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM, BUCKS THE SYSTEM, ETC. BOTH, "LADY IN CEMENT" AND "TONY ROME" ARE A BIT SHALLOW, BUT ENGAGING, AND DEFINITELY SWINGIN' SIXTIES FLICKS. SOME GOOD SUSPSENSE AND COMEDY, BUT, MOSTLY JUST...SWINGIN'! AND SEEING THE 51 YEAR OLD SINATRA SWINGIN' AND HAVING FUN WITH RAQUEL WELCH ADDS UP TO A FUN TWO HOURS...AND THE MUSIC IS REALLY CHEESEY, WHICH JUST MAKES IT EVEN MORE...UH...SWINGIN'. SINATRA HAS A GOOD TIME MAKING THE FLICK, AND AS ALWAYS, IS VERY VERY COOL. HOW COULD A CHARACTER NAMED "TONY ROME" NOT BE VERY VERY COOL???
