Extraordinary cast of western greats

It's Buck Jones' last film, which is sad, but he is supported by some of the greatest western players in a Monogram film, with a bigger budget than many of the other B westerns of the era.

Besides the superb cast, the editing is by the great Carl Pierson, who was himself a director of skill, no doubt because of his editing experience.

Mack Wright, a director of note himself, was assistant director on "Dawn," with Howard Bretherton the director.

There is even a really pleasant music score, better than so many low-budget westerns, which sometimes even had no, or almost no, music. Edward Kay, of whom I know nothing else, was the music director.

Whatever flaws "Dawn" might have, any film -- ANY film -- with such actors as Chief Yowlatchie, Art Mix, Bud Osborne, Reed Howes, and so many more really talented performers, all appearing with no credit, has to be recognized as an excellent western.

That it was the last time for Buck Jones, well, that is just too much to pass up. I highly recommend this movie, for that and other reasons.
