Captain Wronski (German:Rittmeister Wronski) is a 1954 West German thriller film directed by Ulrich Erfurth and starring Willy Birgel, Elisabeth Flickenschildt and Antje Weisgerber. A Polish officer works undercover in 1930s Berlin to discover Nazi Germany's plans against his homeland. The casting of Birgel in the title role referenced his best-known performance during the Nazi era when he had played another Rittmeister in Riding for Germany (1941).[1]
