An unusually sentimental endeavor from rough-and-ready Monogram pictures, Road to Happiness stars former 20th Century-Fox leading man John Boles. Recently divorced, Boles tries to make things pleasant for his son Billy Lee (who two years earlier had captivated the critics in The Biscuit Eater). Complications ensue in the form of Boles' ex-wife and a battery of lawyers. Roscoe Karns lightens the proceedings with his patented brashness. Road to Happiness was scripted by Robert D. Andrews, of If I Had a Million fame.
