Roads of Destiny (1921) - Lost Silent ?
18 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Lewis Marsh ( Richard Tucker ), who betrays Rose Merritt ( Pauline Frederick ) and refuses to marry her, is in love with Ann Hardy ( Jane Novak ), who is loved also by his brother David Marsh ( John Bowers ). Lewis pleads with David not to take Ann from him, and while asleep David has three different dreams in which the characters in his own tragedy act out the same conclusion to each episode: In Alaska, the mistress of a gambling hall owner is killed by him when she falls in love with a young inventor who loves another woman. In the second episode a similar incident involves a number of Long Island society people. The third episode introduces a Mexican girl as the betrayed woman. Awakening, David decides to marry Ann, and Rose and Lewis are reconciled.

This 1921 silent romance/drama was based on the story of the same name by William Sydney Porter, that was turned into a play by Channing Pollock starring Florence Reed. The film was produced by the Goldwyn Pictures Corporation, starring silent film actress Pauline Frederick. Sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
