Storyline

Parody trailers are a dime-a-dozen now but they were a real novelty when this short from Educational Pictures ("The spice of the program!") appeared in movie houses. Its satire of "coming attractions" hyperbole encompasses hillbillies singing "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain" in the manner of synagogue cantors and a gag set in the Frozen North. - Dennis Harvey

Not the same short...by a long ways.

"Then Came the Dawn (1932)", produced by Vitaphone and distributed by Warner Bros. is a 15 minute two-reeler (# 7502) in which Jack Haley plays a man with a sleeping affliction, who falls asleep at odd times and places, including at the altar while getting married to Christine Maple. She leaves him sleeping at the altar and she sails for England with her father, played by John Hamilton. Meawhile, Jack has followed her to the pier and manages to fall asleep in a car that is hoisted aboard the ship. In London, he encounters a gang of anti-capitalists who are plotting to kill Hamilton. Yes, it's a comedy. No, it is not the 1934 short from Educational that runs eight minutes, and is a parody of Universal horror films. Alas, the latter is not on site. It should be because there is a review on it on this page. But that review is not for "Then Came the Yawn(1932)"
