Very cheaply produced, Rebellious Daughters was released on a theater-by-theater basis as an "exploitationer." Such familiar faces as Marjorie Reynolds, Verna Hillie, Sheila Bromley and Lita Chevret play the daughters of the title, who rebel against their mommies and daddies by heading to the sinful Big City and indulging in all sorts of forbidden pleasures. Many of the wayward lasses come to grief, with the exception of the heroine, who is rescued in the nick of time by her roving-reporter boyfriend. Veteran supporting players Monte Blue, Dell Henderson and Vivien Oakland do their best to bring a bit of professionalism to the shoddy proceedings. Even in 1938, Rebellious Daughters was regarded as "camp."
