The British Road to Fortune is a cheap "quota quickie," and never pretends to be anything else. The villain spends most of the picture trying to get his lunchhooks on an unspoiled sylvan glade, in order to mine its tin deposits. This sparks a feud between the would-be miner and the landowner, whose niece, naturally, is in love with the miner's nephew. Rather than rely on any subtle or witty method to dispose of the bad guy, the screenwriters summarily toss the old coot off the side of a cliff. Reviewers were of the opinion that Road to Fortune was completed in about 10 days; they were merely being generous.
