The magnificent shots of Miami Beach, Florida, capture most of the interest in this slick private-eye tale.
Frank Sinatra as ex-cop Tony Rome is fine, but certainly no Bogart. He is hired by Simon Oakland to find out why the man’s daughter ended up drunk in a low-class Miami hotel.
He has to dodge bullets and women on the way, but not without a salty sense of humour.
Jill St John, Sue Lyon and Gena Rowlands are all good for the eyes. Richard Conte and Jeffrey Lynne look tough.
