Eve's Daughter was the fourth and final screen teaming of Billie Burke and Thomas Meighan. This time out, Burke is cast as Irene Simpson-Bates, who is disheartened to learn that her millionaire father has left her with a mere $15,000. She is subsequently courted by two men: Poor but respectable John Norton (Thomas Meighan), and rich but disreputable Courtenay Urquahrt (Lionel Atwill, in his American screen debut). In dire need of cash, Irene enters into a romance with Urquahrt. But when he makes it clear that he wants to "keep" her rather than marry her, she changes her mind and casts her lot with Norton. The film was based on a stage play by Alice Ramsey.
