Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Banker's Daughter was a five-reel adaptation of the popular 19th-century play by Bronson Howard. On her deathbed, an old woman entrusts her banker husband's happiness to her golden-haired daughter. The girl does everything to brighten her daddy's existence, even marrying a man she does not love so as to save the banker from bankruptcy. Gradually, the girl comes to love and appreciate her dull but well-meaning husband, as the audience knew she would. Meanwhile, a pair of her ex-suitors continue to pay court to the heroine, which leads to near-tragedy in the final reels. The Banker's Daughter was directed by William F. Haddock, a mainstay of the Eclair Film Corporation.
