Tenderloin (1928) is a part-talkie crime film directed by Michael Curtiz, starring Dolores Costello. It had some talking sequences but was also silent with music and effects. It was produced and released by Warner Brothers. Tenderloin is considered a lost film, with no prints currently known to exist.[1][2]

This film was a precursor of things to come at Warner Brothers in the Depression 30s. A crime film filled with lots of scantilly clad beautiful women especially Dolores Costello in an onstage review scene. It was perhaps one of Michael Curtiz's most daring films.
