Captain Wronski (German: Rittmeister Wronski) is a 1954 West German spy 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 film is very loosely based on Michael Graf Soltikow [de]'s book about Jerzy Sosnowski. It was shot at the Tempelhof Studios in Berlin with sets designed by the art director Fritz Maurischat. 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]
