The Dawn Rider is a 1935 American Western film starring John Wayne[1] and directed by Robert N. Bradbury.

The film was later released in a colorized version on home video/ dvd under the title Cold Vengeance[2].


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