Tony Rome

Synopsis: Tony Rome is an ex-cop turned private eye in Miami Beach. For $200 he returns a young woman to her father's house after she passes out in a seedy hotel, and he keeps the hotel's name out of it. Trouble is, she's missing a diamond pin, and tough guys show up at Tony's boat looking for it. When the pin does turn up, it's fake, so the girl's father, a wealthy builder, hires Tony to find out what happened to the real stones. Bodies pile up, Tony suspects the builder's trophy wife, and he's also looking for a mysterious guy named Nimmo who used to date Ann Archer, a stunning redhead Tony meets at the builder's. Can Tony sort it out before too many die, and what about Ann?

What time does

the hockey game start?

How long have

you known Diana?

An hour.

How'd she get so wet?

I thought you'd know.

There was some drinking

here last night.

She got a little teed off

about something and tore off in a taxi.

Well, I finally got her

settled down.

She says she passed out

in a hotel room.

She couldn't have

gotten that drunk.

Was she alone, or did you have

anything to do with her condition?

She had intimate relations with

a bottle of booze. That's all I know.

What was the name

of that hotel?

That's where I fit in.

The management didn't want any trouble,

so they hired me to bring her home.

- Hired you?

- Yes. I'm a private detective, Mr. Kosterman.

Now, she's home safely.

Why don't you drop the whole matter?

You know, I could call the police

and make you reveal the name of the hotel.

Mr. Kosterman's a very rich man.

He has a lot of influence.

He'd have to be rich to pay the tabs

for the booze she drinks.

Oh, now, just one minute, Mr. Rome.

You don't know my daughter.

She's never done anything

like this before.

Now, she's in trouble. She must be.

Why would she do a thing like that?

I think a psychiatrist can give you better

answers than I can, Mr. Kosterman.

My only child disappears and comes back

in this condition, and I wanna know why!

I'll pay ya to find out!

Why don't you let her sleep it off,

and when she feels better, talk it over.

If she's in a jam,

then you can hire me.

How do we know who this fellow is...

or what he is?

Lieutenant Santini of the Miami Police

Department can vouch for me.

My number's

in the phone book.

- Mr. Rome...

- What's your problem?

- Would you give me a lift into town?

- I would be delighted, lady.

I don't think they have the makings

of another party here. Ciao.
