Dawn!  Thanks, Leo.  That reminds me of one of the titles I was trying to
remember:

THE DAWN PATROL

Originally made in 1930 and then remade just eight years later.  In
contrast to my comments about THE FRONT PAGE/HIS GIRL FRIDAY, I'll take the
1930, Hawks-directed, Richard Barthelmess-starring release over the 1938,
Goulding-directed, Errol Flynn-starring one.
