The Lubin company of Philadelphia only made a handful of feature films. If Daughters of Men was any indication, the company was well advised to stick to one- and two-reelers. The story was a protracted account of a Labor vs. Management dispute, with Labor coming off as rather unsympathetic (unusually, considering the "populist" appeal of the early American cinema). George Soule Spencer played the principal capitalist, with Ethel Clayton (the only real "name" in the picture) as his daughter. In his publicity packet, Sigmund "Pop" Lubin described this 5-reeler as "His Masterpiece." It wasn't.
