Alexander: The Other Side of Dawn is a 1977 American made-for-television drama film directed by John Erman, and a sequel to Dawn: Portrait of a Teenage Runaway (1976). It premiered on NBC on May 16, 1977.[1]


Alexander Duncan (McCloskey), a country-boy-turned-Hollywood-hustler, tries to find legitimate work in order to marry a teenaged prostitute (Plumb) he had hoped to rehabilitate, but he gets involved with a homosexual football pro (Feinstein).


Alexander was the last appearance by actress Jean Hagen, who died August 29, 1977.


Phil Hall of Film Threat called it "not a great film" but "a breakthrough, of sorts, in LGBT television."[2]
