Lady In Cement is a 1968 detective film, directed by Gordon Douglas and starring Frank Sinatra, Raquel Welch, Dan Blocker, Martin Gabel and Richard Conte. A sequel to the 1967 film Tony Rome, and based on the novel by Marvin H. Albert, Lady In Cement was released on November 20th 1968.
When Tony Rome walks into the room in the massage parlor where Bronski is, Bronski (Dan Blocker) is watching the TV show “Bonanza” (1959) where he starred as Hoss Cartwright.
The scene when Tony Rome gets in the taxi by the air-port, there is an advertisement for fellow “Rat Pack” member, Dean Martin’s restaurant on the side of the cab.
Sinatra says that he knew a girl that used to date bullfighters, a reference to Ava Gardner’s affair with a matador when filming The Barefoot Contessa (1954) in Spain.
As Tony Rome is running from the police on the beach, you hear a band playing the Sinatra song “You Make Me Feel So Young”.
