Reputedly, von Stroheim's last film as a director!
21 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

Everyone gets excited when they see Erich von Stroheim billed as the star and reputed to have had some hand in directing his own scenes. But equally exciting is that the screenplay was co-scripted by Robert Ellis of Robert Ellis and Helen Logan fame – 20th Century Fox's top screen writing team. Actually, the script is not all that brilliant, but in the hands of someone like von Stroheim, it comes across like gang busters. On the other hand when some of the other players get hold of it, it's far less engrossing. For instance, Wera Engels makes little impression as the pretty heroine, and Leslie Fenton comes across as a no more than adequate hero. By far the worst performance, however, is contributed by George Humbert whom director Frank Strayer allows to ham up the screen as an egotistical family man. Nevertheless, despite the fact that this movie enjoyed no New York release at all, it is is a must-see item with good production values thanks to the fact that it was filmed at Universal studios. Fugitive Road is now available on a very good Alpha DVD.
