Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - «"My heart is ice, my passion consuming fire. Let men beware," exclaimed Theda Bara (via an inter-title, of course) in this "Vamp" melodrama based on Grabriele D'Annunzio's 1898 story La Gioconda. According to Fox publicity, the Italian author/playwright had insisted that no one else but Bara should play his femme fatale, a rather silly statement considering the status of film in general at the time and lurid Bara movies in particular. She played an artist's model, who when deserted by her fiancée, sallies forth to destroy men everywhere. As usual in a Bara movie, the protagonist goes mad in the final reel. The Devil's Daughter, Bara's third true "Vamp" movie, was filmed in St. Augustine, Florida» (Hans J. Wollstein).
