Like her father Tilly Kutschera also gained a foothold in the film business but her appearances in front of the camera remained seldom.
For the director Georg Jacoby she took part in "Bogdan Stimoff" (16) at the side of Georg Reimers, Carl Goetz and Lotte Medelsky and two years later followed the production "Der letzte Erbe von Lassa" (18) directed by Conrad Wiene. To her film partners also belong her father Viktor Kutschera.

Tilly Kutschera committed suicide before she reached the age of 30.
