Tenderloin (1928) is a part-talkie crime film directed by Michael Curtiz, starring Dolores Costello. It had some talking sequences but was some 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.  
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. The first film shot with the aspect ratio 1.37 : 1.
Rose Shannon, a dancing girl at "Kelly's," in the 'Tenderloin' district of New York City, worships at a distance Chuck White, a younger member of the gang that uses the place as their hangout. Chuck's interest in her is only just as another toy to play with. Rose is unknowingly placed in a position in which she is implicated in a crime which she knows nothing about. The police pick her up, and the gang sends Chuck to take care of her in the event she may know or disclose something that will implicate the gang.
