The Have a Heart Cocktail was first published in Patrick Gavin Duffy's 1934 The Official Mixer's Manual. Possibly created by Duffy, it takes its name from the eponymous movie Have a Heart, starring Jean Parker and James Dunn. Have a Heart is a 1934 American drama film directed by David Butler and written by Florence Ryerson and Edgar Allan Woolf. Have a Heart was released on September 7, 1934, by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
Jean Parker (born Lois Mae Green, pictured right) was an American film and stage actress. Parker landed her first screen test while still in high school. She acted opposite well-known actors like Katharine Hepburn, Robert Donat, Edward G. Robinson, Randolph Scott, and Laurel and Hardy.
Jean Parker appeared in 70 movies from 1932 through 1966, Parker's film debut came in Divorce in the Family (1932), and her last film appearance was Apache Uprising, in 1966.
Jean Parker was married four times and had one son, Robert Lowery Hanks. Parker passed away in Woodland Hills (California, USA), on November 2005, age 90.
The Have a Heart Cocktail provides an intriguing combination of dry gin and Swedish punch, with pomegranate grenadine and lime flavors.
