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>

"Tony Rome" is No "Harper"
28 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

Sinatra's take on Dino's "Matt Helm" is "Tony Rome," with a rousing theme song sung by his daughter, Nancy Sinatra. It starts out flashy with Ol' Blue Eyes as a bachelor/private detective and loving it, with plenty of eye-candy like Jill St. John. Her presence makes it feel like Connery's Bond movie "Diamonds Are Forever." They do have great chemistry and their scenes together make for most of the film's charm. "Tony Rome" does have some recognizable faces and names for die-hard film buffs, including Gena Rowlands, Simon Oakland, Richard Conte, a fun role for Joan Shawlee (one of Billy Wilder's constant actors) as a "lady" Sinatra interrogates and who propositions him, and a rare 60s role for 1930/40s actor Jeffrey Lynn, who you'd miss, if you didn't know him. But, the film's major flaw is its length and its emphasis on characters introduced late in the film, which makes the viewer confused, having to deal with so many interested parties in "the case of the missing jewelry," and of whom the viewer has not invested any interest in. Therefore, the viewer is left wondering what happened and feeling rather unsatisfied. A movie similar in tone, but done much better is Paul Newman's "Harper." But, I give it a 5 for a good beginning and Jill St. John making the most of her role.
