Movie Info

Seafarer/novelist Leonard Fayne (Thomas Meighan) takes The Easy Road when he weds wealthy Isabel Grace (Gladys George). Once an ambitious workhorse, Fayne degenerates into a slothful lounge lizard and drunkard. Despairing over his fall from grace, Fayne gets a new lease on life by rescuing suicidal Ella Klotz (Lila Lee) and encouraging her to persevere. When wife Isabel returns from a desultory affair, she finds that her husband is a "new man"--one worthy of her unconditional love. Billed third in The Easy Road is Grace Goodall, who spent the rest of her career playing society dowagers in two-reel comedies. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews for The Easy Road

All Critics (1)

You wouldn't believe that a picture with Thomas Meighan in it could be as bad as The Easy Road... for, even with that most engaging actor, the picture manages to achieve an unbelievable amount of banality.
