Kohlhiesels Töchter (English title: Kohlhiesel's Daughters) is a 1920 German silent comedy film directed by Ernst Lubitsch and starring Henny Porten, Emil Jannings and Jakob Tiedtke. It is an adaptation of the play Kohlhiesel's Daughters by Hanns Kräly, Lubitsch's frequent collaborator, who also worked on the film's screenplay. Three further film adaptations have been made of the work including a 1930 sound remake which also starred Porten.
In Bavaria, a sweet-natured young woman Gretel wants to get married but her father refuses to allow the match until her elder sister Liesel has married first. As Liesel is notorious for her bad-tempered personality, this is no easy challenge.
