Rebellious Daughters is an American movie of 1938. It was the first feature film directed by Jean Yarbrough, and starred Marjorie Reynolds. The film's producer was Ben Judell of Progressive Pictures, known for low-budget exploitation films with provocative titles; other films released by Progressive the same year included Delinquent Parents and Slander House.
It's the night before the birthday of Single child Barbara Webster (Verna Hillie). Her spoiled and unaffectionate mother tells her she won't be in town and she doesn't want her daughter to go with her where she's invited. Barbara, called also Babe, is quite disappointed about the coldness of her mother and relies on her father. Unfortunately, her mother tells her, he will be out of town as well. Barbara is left alone with her sadness about her parents not caring for her. That's what makes her call a friend Eddie to organize something for the evening. Eddie is with a friend Bill Evans, who asks if "she could bring something alive" with her. She answers, only the dead have to be digged out, and she will see to find something dandy and dumb.
She calls an old friend, Claire Elliott. She would love to get out, but her father is rather severe and doesn't want her to go to night clubs. Babe nonetheless goes personally to talk with father Elliott and manages to convince him. In the night club the two gentlemen leave the girls for some minutes to go and say hello to old friends of them. Meantime a woman, Flo Russell, comes to their table and tells them she works for Mr. Gilman, who owns an exclusive gown salon in New York and would be glad to have them as Models in his shop. The boys come back with the intention to go to another party. Claire is forced to go with the group. On the way they are caught by police and Claires father has to bring them home. He makes her a speech and forbids her to exit home. With Babe they decide to leave home and go to New York to work for Gilman. They are hired by Gilman but they soon discover that he has another racket going on in his shop: blackmailing rich customers photographing them in suspicious situations. The story evolves ...
