F.P.1 antwortet nicht, or F.P.1 Doesn't Respond was the name of a novel written by noted science fiction and fantasy writer/director Kurt Siodmak, best known as the creator of The Wolf Man. The novel was turned into a film in 1932, directed by Karl Hartl — it was produced as a multilingual version (MLV), with one film each in German, French, and English. Filming versions in different languages was common in the early sound film period. Written after Charles Lindbergh's transatlantic flight, the plot concerned a permanent air station in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The German version was the last German film that either Siodmak or Peter Lorre, who played a secondary character, would make in Germany before the war. It premiered on 22 December 1932. By 1933, a political joke referring to Adolf Hitler played on the title of the film: "Parteigenosse 1 antwortet nicht," or "Party Member 1 doesn't answer."
