Quite good for its day and it even holds up reasonably well today.
15 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I was surprised by D.W. Griffith's "The Narrow Road". That's because I assumed it would be a heavy-handed morality tale--the sort that was VERY common in the day. However, despite it having a very obvious moral/civic lesson, it doesn't come across as overly preachy. Plus, the acting is quite naturalistic and understated.

Two men are released from prison. One is going home to his lovely wife (Mary Pickford) and the other right back to a life of crime. While living this straight and narrow sort of life is tough, the film illustrates the future the two men might expect--along with some help from a couple very handy hobos (one of which DOES look a lot like the comedian Max Davidson). Worth seeing and surprisingly good.
