American leading lady Betty Blythe played the title character in the French-produced Daughter of Israel. The ever-maturing Blythe is cast as the gaminelike granddaughter of a Turkish rabbi, who is taken out of her cozy environs by a music-hall star and transformed into a cabaret dancer. It isn't that she hates the work; it's simply that she feels she has turned her back on her people. Blythe is rescued by an elderly Jewish leader who takes her to a Zionist colony in Palestine. She marries her benefactor, but her heart remains with her true love back in Constantinople. Daughter of Israel was originally released in 1925 under the title Le Puits de Jacob.
