Tony Rome is a flip gumshoe on the Miami scene, with a busy, heavily-populated script, zesty Gordon Douglas direction, and solid production values.

Marvin H. Albert’s novel, Miami Mayhem, is scripted into a fast-moving whodunit which, per se, is far less intriguing than the individual scenes en route to climax. Credit Frank Sinatra’s excellent style, and the production elements, for pulling it off.

Apart from some inside gags, including an overplugging of the beer with which Sinatra has a blurb tie-in, there is an abundance of double-entendre dialog which in reality can be taken only one way.
