Numerous films called The Miner's Daughter were made in the early years of the twentieth century, mostly in the United States: at least one was, like the Australian film The Luck of Roaring Camp, descended from a short work by American writer Bret Harte. There is no indication that this film is based on the Bret Harte story, and advertisements prominently note that it is 'Produced in Australia by Australians'.
