Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The splendidly named Muriel Ostriche plays the title character in Daughter of the Sea. Identified only as "The Girl", Ostriche is a humble denizen of a poor fishing village. When the Girl saves wealthy dowager Catherine Calhoun, she is rewarded with lavish living quarters and an expensive education. Calhoun draws the line, however, at Ostriche's romance with her son Clifford Grey. The heroine is forced to prove her courage again before Calhoun considers her a worthy daughter-in-law. Daughter of the Sea was based on a story by future MGM scenarist Frances Marion (The Champ).
