Another Dawn is a 1937 American film melodrama.

Plot[edit]

A woman whose fiance died in World War I reluctantly weds a maritally petitioning British Army colonel and goes with him to a British Imperial colonial garrison, however after their arrival he is disconcerted to discover that she has fallen in love with the Regimental Adjutant, and to complicate the Colonel's life further the native Arab tribe commences an uprising.

Cast[edit]

Production notes[edit]

Bette Davis was originally announced to play the lead role.[1] Flynn apparently wrecked his ankle whilst playing tennis during the making of the film and required hospitalization.[2] William Dieterle later claimed he did not want to make the film but did it as a favour to Hal Wallis.[3] Erich Wolfgang Korngold was so pleased with his theme music for this production that he used it in the Violin Concerto he wrote for Jascha Heifetz years later.[4]
