My daughter Patricia is an Austrian father-daughter comedy from 1959 by Wolfgang Liebeneiner with Martin Held and Gerlinde Locker in the leading roles.


Patricia is the neat, fresh daughter of the aging bachelor Heinz Roland, who runs a pharmacy in the small town of Neuburg. Heinz hardly knows Patricia because the 17-year-old was raised in a Swiss boarding school. But the pharmacist, who has enjoyed his quiet, contemplative life so far, will soon get to know his daughter Patricia better, because the perky, rebellious young lady has been thrown out of the boarding school and is now traveling with her best friend, the Swiss Denise, without further ado to Neuburg. Also there is a young man named Lüthi who hangs on the lips of both girls. As long as he cannot decide who his heart should belong to in the future, modern young women will share it without further ado. As soon as they arrive at Roland's house, the two girls thoroughly mix up the previously unexciting life of the pharmacist. While the attractive, blonde and somewhat flirtatious laboratory assistant Trudchen Palmann has had all of Roland's attention so far, in his prime the gentleman quickly begins to keep an eye on Patricia's dashing Swiss friend. Trudchen, in turn, now tries to ensnare the robust Lüthi.

This, in turn, does not suit Denise at all, and so she mixes a powder in the sleeping draft of Trudchen and her conquest Lüthi, to checkmate the two, on which the two do nothing “stupid”. However, the dose was far too high, so that the local doctor Dr. Hartung has to rush to prevent worse. Soon the word was going round in Neuburg that Heinz Roland was going to have to go crazy, and there was even talk of orgies! And so the village bourgeoisie begin to get together against the hitherto respected pharmacist in order to boycott him and put an end to the supposedly “immoral goings-on” as quickly as possible. Tired of the constant female temptations, Lüthi finally decides that from now on only Patricia should have his heart. Both want to run away and get married when they are prevented from fleeing by the solid Celia, Denise's mother. In turn, the pharmacist finally has a hearing, because he had to understand that Denise is sexy and lively, but ultimately too young and too exhausting for him in the long run. Denise's grief is limited, because now she has at least won a new father through the upcoming marriage of her mother Celia and Roland. The people of Neuburg are also reconciling with Heinz Roland, especially since two weddings are coming up soon in the village.
