''Tony Rome'' is a 1967 American [[FilmNoir neo-noir]] detective film directed by Gordon Douglas and starring Music/FrankSinatra, Jill St. John, Sue Lyon and Creator/GenaRowlands.

The story follows the adventures of Miami private investigator Tony Rome (Sinatra) in his quest to locate a missing diamond pin that belongs to a wealthy heiress, Diana (Lyon), the daughter of rich construction magnate Rudolph Kosterman, and her stepmother Rita (Rowlands), while also getting help from a seductive divorcee, Ann Archer (St. John).

A sequel, ''Film/LadyInCement'', was released in 1968, again featuring Sinatra as Rome.
!!This film features examples of:
* DeadpanSnarker: Rome, as befitting of a HardboiledDetective played by Music/FrankSinatra.
-->'''Diana:''' People change. They don't always turn out the way you expect.
-->'''Tony:''' I know. You should see my baby pictures.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: [[spoiler:At the end, Ann leaves Rome after she decides to go back to her husband.]]
* DoubleEntendre: Rome holds a long conversation with his neighbor Mrs. Schuyler about her cat... who they both insist to refer to as a "pussy".
* LipstickLesbian: Rome meets an attractive, very femenine stripper... who is revealed to have a much older (and much more butch) female "roommate". Their subsequent argument when the stripper arrives home with Rome leaves no doubt about the true nature of their relationship.
