In his swinging-50s heyday, Sinatra never played by the rules - though he always knew that they were there, and that the other guys usually went along with them. In this roaring, sexed-up, violent product of 60s permissiveness, he seems an odd anachronism. But as a seedy private eye investigating a murder among the Miami millionaires, he seems to be coping with the social and sexual revolution going on around him, and perhaps - like Sid James in Carry on Camping - he thinks he might even get a piece of it. Breen's double-entendre-filled script seems to have learnt a thing or two from Talbot Rothwell, too.
