Playwright/producer G. B. Samuelson assumed the directorial responsibilities of the British Game of Life. Set during the Victorian Era, the film reflects the momentous events of that historical period as seen through the eyes of three young ladies. Most of the dramatic burden is shouldered by Isobel Elsom as Alice Fletcher. The other leading players are Lillian Hall Davis and Dorothy Minto. The longest British feature film up to 1922, Game of Life is more interesting for what it attempted rather than for what it actually accomplished.
