Narrow Road, The (1912)

*** (out of 4)

Jim Holcomb (Elmer Booth) and a friend (Charles Hill Mailes) are released from prison. Jim has his loving wife (Mary Pickford) there to help him go straight but the friend decides to go down the wrong path and this here might fall back on Jim. This is a pretty good morality tale from Griffith who once again tries to push his message of hard work and redemption over on the viewer. Considering some of the person issues in Griffith's own life I always found it rather interesting that he was so up beat in his films. This movie really benefits from the strong performances by Booth and Pickford. The two do very good work together and really comes across nicely. Pickford basically has the role of standing around preaching but she does well with it. The most notable thing is that Griffith was experimenting with his cross cutting of two stories. He does this extremely well to the point that the story never becomes confusing.
