, or F.P.1 Doesn't Respond
was the name of a novel written by noted science fiction and fantasy writer/director Curt Siodmak
, best known as the creator of the The Wolf Man
The novel was turned into three films over 1932 to 1933, directed by Karl Hartl — one each in English, French, and German. Filming multiple 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.
