Movie Info

The Sun Sets at Dawn is a crime melodrama with strong religious overtones. The Boy (Philip Shawn) is about to be executed in the State's brand-new electric chair. On this momentous occasion, dozens of reporters gather around as The Boy tells his sad life story. While this is going on, the person who should be electrocuted is exposed, and it is suggested that a Divine force has brought about this last-minute miracle. Sally Parr co-stars as The Girl, who believes in The Boy's innocence (the characters have no names; this, evidently, is meant to be symbolic). Walter Reed also appears as The Chaplain, who has ever so much to say. The Sun Sets at Dawn represents the return after a lengthy retirement of director Paul H. Sloane, who also wrote and produced.
