Although Dolores Jardine's ( Pauline Frederick ) grandmother has betrothed her to the wealthy young Spaniard, Pedro de Alvarez ( Pedro De Cordoba ), she is determined to marry a man of her own choosing. She falls in love with novelist Richard Ferris ( Rex MacDougall ) who, although initially attracted by her beauty and Creole charm, abandons the girl when his old flame Lillian Hetherington ( Vera Beresford ) suddenly appears. Seeking revenge, Dolores invites Richard to dinner and conceals Lillian behind a curtain. After overhearing Richard promise to marry Dolores, Lillian leaves in disgust and Dolores wanders into the woods distraught. Pedro prevents her from drowning herself and takes her to his heart.
This 1918 silent drama was produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starred Pauline Frederick. The survival status of A Daughter of the Old South is now sadly listed as a lost silent film.
