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."
