Daddy's Gone A-Hunting is a 1969 film drama directed by Mark Robson.

This is the first film directed by Robson after his 1967 box-office hit Valley of the Dolls. It bears little or no relationship to a 1925 silent film with the same name.


Cathy Palmer, a young British woman, comes to San Francisco to live. There she meets Kenneth, a relationship develops and she becomes pregnant, but when Cathy sees another side of Kenneth's personality, she elects to break off their engagement and abort the pregnancy.

In the weeks to come, Cathy begins to see another man, Jack Byrnes, who has political ambitions. Kenneth, however, continues to be disturbed by the way Cathy ended their romance, and he comes back into her life.
