The Dawn Rider (1935)

John Wayne, Marion Burns
Robert N. Bradbury
John Wayne was still a few years from major stardom when he appeared as John Mason, a man seeking revenge for his father’s murder. Marion Burns stars as Alice, Mason’s love interest, while Reed Howes stars as Mason’s friend and rival for Alice’s affection. When Mason finally tracks down the man responsible for his father’s death, will Ben help, or stand in his way? Produced by Lone Star Pictures, the group behind many of Wayne’s early films, The Dawn Rider is a stirring yarn about the price of vengeance. (BW)
