This comes from the same Hollywood that today protests against the very same sexism that they had a hand in actively promoting over the last 50 years. The same for violence. In public they protest against what they actively promote on the screen. And make money off of it to boot. So who's to blame?

This film is among a group of detective films known as late sixties neo-noir. Now the “noir” films are no longer in black and white with shadows and night darkness threatening at each turn. And there is no suspenseful symphony music to make us get worried that the next frame will bring harm to somebody up on the big screen. In these “neo-noir” films we get sunny daylight, bright Technicolor, and music that is more up-beat and rocky. We have one actor who bridges the two types of noir, Richard Conte. In this film, Conte is no longer the hated, scary or manipulative menace. He is now is just playing a police manager collecting bodies that PI Tony Rome (Frank Sinatra) generates all over the place. One interesting joke – “Until hell freezes over” is replaced by “When Georgia elects a colored governor.”

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”
