The Dawn Rider is a 1935 American Western film starring John Wayne.[1]


John Mason chases after his father's killer, an outlaw who remains elusive until he is tricked into revealing himself with a decoy gold shipment. To complicate matters, the killer is the brother of Alice, the woman with whom Mason has fallen in love. Alice begs Mason not seek vengeance, but a showdown is inevitable.


A remake of this film in 2012, entitled Dawn Rider, cast Christian Slater in the role of John Mason.
