I enjoyed this early talkie about a streetwise gold digger living in New York who tries to protect her younger sister (from the country) against the vice and men of the big city. Sound like Bette Davis's "Marked Woman"? Sort of! Low-budget, but really doesn't look it. Marian Marsh is good as the leading lady. Bert Roach has a comical role as a constantly tipsy rich man and Florence Roberts (Mother Peep in "March of the Wooden Soldiers") has a tipsy scene of her own. The film only runs about an hour and is obviously a harmless attempt to show 1930's moral issues. "Daring Daughters" is not as mean or as hard hitting as "Marked Woman" (it wasn't meant to be), but it is still an enjoyable diversion.
