  • highlight upon a neglected gem of the 1930s..

    'Another Dawn',a screen play by Laird Doyle,found Kay Francis as a (hot) widow(Julia Ashton),finding for herself a new mate,a British officer,in the midst of a high brow English garden party.Within a short time she finds herself drawn to yet another (British officer)-not unlikely at all for this (beautiful) woman!.As well as Ian Hunter,cast members of this fine movie included Frieda Insecount (who could have had Hunter before Kaycame around),Billy Bevan (a British soldier who,after the jokes finds serious redemption),Mary Forbes,& amoung others,second billed-Errol Flynn.Besides being billed above Hunter,(who plays his commanding office Col.Wister),Flynn (Capt.Denny Roark) nabs onto the feelings of his newly married wife (Kay-now Julia Wister).He reminds her of a previously deseased husband.He also skirmishes with some bad arabs in the Sahara desert.This guy gets it done in a sandstorm?Does (Hunter) as Col.Wister have to proove he's no slouch?Honor & integrity,or stupidity?He sure knows how to fly a plane!William Dieterle's low key direction dealing with all this,along with Erich Wolfgang Korngold's fine musical score also contributed to the high quality of this (1937) release.Later viewers of this flick will also appreciate how it all worked out,watching the interactions between the principles of Kay Francis,Errol Flynn & Ian Hunter.

  • Classic 30's Romance

    This has a great trio: Francis, Flynn and Hunter. I think Ian Hunter was paired with Francis so often because his height and physique matched hers. (Same with George Brent.) This is a great romantic melodrama - everyone is noble minded, handsome, long suffering, well dressed.An excellent music score, great skill in front and behind the camera makes this one of the best examples of a "Woman's Picture".Don't miss it!!

    Warner Brothers truly erred by not teaming Errol Flynn and Kay Francis more often. The screen chemistry is there. They made a very fine team in "Another Dawn". They took a script and added their own electricity and produced fireworks until the end. I was able to find this film on DVD and treasure it immensely.

  • Fine music score by Korngold

    A grade B, very routine Hollywood production, a standard-issue potboiler, but: the real hero of the film is the music composer, Erich Korngold, who fashioned a rich and gratifying musical score, highly romantic in an over-the-top way. So good that it almosts distracts the viewer/listener from the film, at times. This score includes some music that Korngold borrowed for his violin concerto, which he wrote around 1949 or 1950.
