Manhattan Cocktail (1928) was a part-talkie film, directed by Dorothy Arzner, and starring Nancy Carroll, Richard Arlen, and Lilyan Tashman. At the time this movie was made, Hollywood was already making the transition of silent to sound, either making all talking movies, part talking movies, or silent movies with their own soundtrack and sound effects.
Manhattan Cocktail is a lost film except for a one-minute montage sequence, "Skyline Dance" by Slavko Vorkapich, which was released in October 2005 on the DVD Unseen Cinema: Early American Avant Garde Film 1894-1941.
