A part-talkie is a partly, and most often primarily, silent film which includes one or more synchronous sound sequences with audible dialog or singing. During the silent portions, lines of dialog are presented as "titles"—printed text briefly filling the screen—and the soundtrack is used only to supply musical accompaniment and sound effects.
