Dusk to Dawn would mark the final professional collaboration between King Vidor and Florence Vidor. By the early 1920s, Florence Vidor had emerged as a major film star in her own right and wished to pursue her career independently of her spouse. The couple divorced in 1926, and shortly thereafter Florence married violinist Jascha Heifetz 
Based on a novel The Shuttle Soul by Katherine Hill, the story dramatizes the far Eastern concepts of “migrating souls” advanced by Theopism popular in the United States during the 1920s. Vidor may have identified with Theophist methods of faith healing that that were compatible with his Christian Science principles, encouraging positive thinking over medical interventions.
