Tony Rome

Tony Rome is a 1967 American neo-noir detective film directed by Gordon Douglas and starring Frank Sinatra, Jill St. John, Sue Lyon and Gena Rowlands. It was adapted from Marvin H. Albert's novel Miami Mayhem.


Tony Rome is an ex-cop turned private investigator who lives on a powerboat in Miami called "The Straight Pass". This a reference to the fact that Tony also has a gambling problem. He is asked by his former partner, Ralph Turpin (Robert J. Wilke), to take home a young woman who had been left unconscious in a hotel room.
