Daughter of the Regiment (German: Die Tochter des Regiments) is a 1933 Austrian-German comedy film directed by Carl Lamac and starring Anny Ondra, Werner Fuetterer and Adele Sandrock.[1] It is loosely based on the 1840 opera La fille du regiment by Gaetano Donizetti, with the setting updated from the Napoleonic to the First World War. A separate French-language version was also released, with Ondra reprising her role.


A baby girl is found and rescued by a Scottish regiment during the First World War and adopted as the regiment's daughter. Many years later she is a grown-up when the Highlanders are sent on a special mission to the mountains of Bavaria to crack down on whiskey smugglers.
