Sinatra sleepwalking

Follow-up to 1967's "Tony Rome" is saddled with a tired plot concerning a murdered blonde in Florida and the investigation led by detective Frank Sinatra. Movie gets a much-needed shot in the arm from sexy Raquel Welch as a wealthy woman indirectly involved (she makes her entrance emerging from a swimming pool--bikini clad of course!). Sinatra himself looks rather weary and impatient, tossing off jaded quips without any subtlety, but there are two great supporting performances: Dan Blocker as a shady character fond of twisting heads around and Lainie Kazan as a go-go girl (she has just one smoky sequence, and it's a killer). Otherwise, pretty rote. **1/2 from ****

Sinatra hardboiled again

As far as a vintage detective thriller, "Lady in Cement" has enough wit and charm to make it memorable. It takes itself just seriously enough to get the job done. Sinatra's second turn as Rome doesn't quite have the bite of the first film but it's clear he's enjoying himself. The weary cynicism of Rome suits him well. The late Dan Blocker's delightful as Gronsky. The recent DVD reissue looks sharp and has plenty of trailers but is a bit light on extras.

Director Gordon Douglas ("In Like Flint") keeps the action moving and Raquel Welch looks terrific. Her first appearance is emerging from a swimming pool. I was a bit surprised to see nudity in a mainstream Hollywood feature in 1968 but, well, this was the late 60's after all.
