"If you do not pay the money you owe me at once. Beware!" This is the angry threat of James Farrar to Robert Evers, whom he claimed, owed him a large amount of money for which he is in great need.

It will not satisfy everyone that it has been written as powerfully as possible
25 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

How does a man feel who has committed a murder and been acquitted? Mrs. Breuil and Billy Cook are given as the collaborators on the scenario of this picture which deals with the theme, giving us the particular phases of the experience as they are developed in the consciousness of a chosen individual who is played by Roger Lytton. The title "Off the Road" has a double significance, for the man is not only off the human road in that he lives no longer the normal life, but has become a recluse. The climax follows when the murdered man's son comes to the woods and falls in love with the murderer's daughter, an only child. It is a tensely dramatic picture, although it will not satisfy everyone that it has been written as powerfully as possible, its ending being very close at hand and easy to think out. The acting of Rogers Lytton is imaginative and for the most part quite convincing. Motion picture actors are apt. when drawing sharp emotion to carry it a bit further than the spectator's mind can follow and to keep it on a bit too long. Rosemary Thebv plays, the man's daughter very well. Ralph Ince deserves credit for the production. The camera work is clear, but lacks artistic quality; is rather lifeless. - The Moving Picture World, February 1, 1913
