    From Wikipedia.

    “Frankenstein’s Daughter was shot during just six days for approximately $65,000 and sold to Astor Pictures for $80,000.

    It was filmed at Screencraft Studios in Hollywood, although the house in which much of the action takes place was the home of producer Marc Frederic. Production of the film wrapped in May 1958.

    John Ashley had just made a number of films for American International Pictures. He later recalled ‘AIP was low budget – one hundred grand a movie – but at least they shot on sound stages and the size of the crew was bigger. Frankenstein’s Daughter was really rock bottom. But the people were very nice, especially Duck Cunha, the director … but it was quick, a little more down and dirty than AIP.’

    Ashley later said he remembered two things about the film: ‘the monster, which was a man because the makeup artist didn’t know it was supposed to be a woman, and that we shot the ending at Harold Lloyd’s estate, because Harold Lloyd Jr. played a teenager in it.’

    Although the credits use the words ‘and introducing’ in reference to Harold Lloyd Jr., his first film role was actually 1953’s The Flaming Urge.

    Sally Todd was Miss February 1957 in Playboy magazine.

    The director said the film was his ‘biggest disappointment … because of our monster creator; I can’t blame anyone for that, we just didn’t have enough money to create a monster that would represent Sally Todd.’”

    John Paradox:
    Is this before or after she meets Jesse James?

    Ah, you’re thinking of Dr. Maria Frankenstein from “Jesse James Meets Frankenstein’s Daughter” (1966) (along with her brother Rudolph). She was the GRANDdaughter of THE Dr. Frankenstein but one of the sons of Frankenstein was her father meaning that she is both Frankenstein’s Daughter AND Frankenstein’s Granddaughter. Just not the same Frankensteins, is all. :-)

    See also:

    Tania Frankenstein from “Lady Frankenstein” (1971)
    Dr. Freda Frankenstein from “Santo vs. Frankenstein’s Daughter” (1972)
    Sheila Frankenstein from “Frankenstein Island” (1981)

    among, it seems safe to presume, any number of others. :-)

    All that said, the title character of this particular film is a creation of (and thus only metaphorically a “daughter” of) a GRANDSON of Frankenstein, making her just a metaphorically the GREAT-Granddaughter of THE Dr. Frankenstein.

    ===

    “[When Rudolph] mentions their father, Maria blows her stack. “Father was a weakling! He dared not try the experiments – only on paper!” (Okay – so they’re not Basil Rathbone’s kids [i.e. the children of Wolf von Frankenstein from “Son of Frankenstein” (1939)], or Cedric Hardwicke’s [i.e. the children of Ludwig Frankenstein from “The Ghost of Frankenstein” (1942)]….there must have been a white sheep, the One They Don’t Talk About.)”
