Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Erroneously reviewed by the trade magazine Variety under the title Daughter of the Day, The Daughter of the Don was produced by the Monrovia Feature Film Company, a firm ostensibly devoted to historical films about the state of California. Running a then-astronomical ten reels, the film re-created the Siege of Los Angeles, which pitted the original Spanish settlers against the American "interlopers." Whenever possible, the film was shot on the locations where the historical events actually occurred (Los Angeles was nowhere near as "developed" as it is today). The script was written by Winifred Megaboom, a prominent L.A. newspaperman. Unfortunately, no complete prints of The Daughter of the Don are known to exist.
