Adapted by Kalem scenarist Gene Gauntier from the Thomas Moore poem of the same title, You Remember Ellen is a romantic drama of love across the economic divide.

A humble, hard-working farmer’s daughter (Gauntier) lives a simple life until she happens upon a handsome young man on a country road. They fall in love and marry and live at first in her modest family home. But when it is time to visit his people she travels to William’s homestead she discovers her new husband isn’t quite the man she thought.

The film shares the picturesque surroundings of Killarney, Co Kerry with many others in the Kalem catalogue. The locations were a significant part of the films’ appeal to US emigrant audiences.
