Picturegoer (1922) - The Mystery Road




The Mystery Road

(Famous-Lasky; Oct. 23).

A very mediocre production, made in England, with David Powell as the star. Its theme is the old one of love of woman and a struggle with men. In the cast are Nadja Ostorvska, Pardoe Woodman, Mary Glynne, Ruby Miller, Percy Standing, Lewis Gilbert, Irene Tripod, Lionel D'Aragon, Arthur Cullin, R. Judd Green, and Ralph Forster. Sex attraction is the basis of the story, which is only a grotesque caricature of E. Phillips Oppenheim's original novel.
