Ellen is a free spirited young woman in love with Doug. Sadly he must leave America for a two year job in Belgium. Ellen and Doug decide to spend their last weekend together in a tourist cabin at a rural lake. Her family is shocked that a young unmarried woman would engage in such amoral activity. The comic plot develops as Ellen argues her case for women's freedom and independence, trying to win over her mother, grandmother, and other dubious relatives. Written by

Omaha, Nebraska, March 1, 1939: "The City Welfare Board has voted unanimously to ban 'Yes, My Darling Daughter' here. The film was scheduled to open tomorrow at the Brandeis. Action of the board followed a preview of the picture. Members reported there was a general objection to the theme of the movie. A small group of women representing church and other organizations attended the meeting. The stage version of the play is now in rehearsal at the Amaha Community Playhouse, scheduled to open March 6. The board will review it on March 2 at a Playhouse rehearsal. Reports from the Playhouse are to the effect that the play has been considerably altered." See more
