Critic Reviews for Manhattan Cocktail

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

It is a synthetic Manhattan cocktail without the cherry.

To many the youth of the ambitious trio will predominate. They look arid act well, particularly Richard Arlen, Paramount's leading juvenile at the present moment.

Top Critic

[The story] is is tedious, illogical, and a long way from being original. Even the excellent acting of Richard Arlen, Nancy Carroll, Lllyan Tashman, and the rest of the cast falls to overcome its defects.

July 23, 2020 | Full Review…

The picture is full of pitfalls, badger games, opening nights, and other terrors of the city. Nancy is awfully cute, and does some audible songs and dances.

December 8, 2020 | Full Review…

A well-made sound-picture, with enjoyable synchronised music.

July 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Money has been expended lavishly on it, but the story lacks appealing qualities.
