The Philadelphia-based Lubin Mfg. Co. got into the serial act with this melodramatic story about an innocent girl (Mary Charleson) who finds herself all alone in an unfriendly world when her ward, a professor, suddenly is murdered in front of her eyes. All the girl actually sees of the culprit is a mysterious ringed hand cluthing a curtain before disappearing from sight. The girl, Alene (which, probably not coincidentally, means "alone" in Danish), spends the remaining 14 chapters attempting to solve the murder with the help of Robert Dane (Crane Wilbur), her prince in shining armor. Lubin safeguarded their unusually (for them) huge investment by hiring the stalwart Wilbur, Pearl White's leading man in the ground-breaking serial The Perils of Pauline (1914). Road O' Strife was co-directed by John Ince, brother of legendary producer Thomas H. Ince, and Howell Hansell.
