Daughter of Don Q (1946) is a Republic Movie serial. It combines elements of the B-Western genre with contemporary crime films, especially the popular "land grab" plot in which the villain attempts to steal apparently worthless land from the heroine (in this case) because he secretly knows it is worth a fortune. In this case, Dolores Quantero, is the rightful heir to extremely valuable metropolitan land which another family member, Carlos Manning, wants for himself.

Plot

Delores Quantero is the descendant of Zorro-style hero, Don Quantero, who was granted land by the Spanish crown. This grant, which is still legally valid, now covers the business district of the city. Another descendant, Carlos Manning, has discovered the existence of this document and plots to inherit the fortune by murdering his relatives.

Cast

  • Lorna Gray as Dolores Quantero, heiress and heroine (billed as Adrian Booth)
  • Kirk Alyn as Cliff Roberts, reporter aiding Dolores
  • LeRoy Mason as Carlos Manning, villain
  • Roy Barcroft as Mel Donovan
  • Claire Meade as Marie Martinez
  • Kernan Cripps as Inspector Grogan
  • Jimmy Ames as Romero
  • Eddie Parker in multiple small roles including "Store Clerk" and "Henchman"
  • Tom Steele in multiple small roles including "Streetsweep" and "Bomb thug"

Production

Daughter of Don Q was budgeted at $137,988 although the final negative cost was $140,156 (a $2,168, or 1.6%, overspend).[1]

At 1.6% overbudget this was low for a Republic serial, with an average over all 66 of 5.7% over and especially considering the subsequent serial, The Crimson Ghost, would exceed its budget by 16.9%. Although budgeted to be the most expensive Republic serial of 1946, The Crimson Ghost took that title with its final negative cost of $161,174.[1]

It was filmed between January 3 and 30, 1946.[1] The serial's production number was 1596.[1]

Note: All serials produced by Republic in 1946 were 12 chapters long and this was the first year that no 15-chapter serials were produced by the serial. Almost all future Republic serials would follow this 12-chapter limit until the last was released in 1955.[1]
