Decoy (German: Lockvogel) is a 1934 German adventure film directed by Hans Steinhoff and starring Jakob Tiedtke, Viktor de Kowa, and Jessie Vihrog. A separate French-language version, The Decoy, was released the following year with a largely different cast.
A young man is commissioned by his jeweler father to take a valuable necklace from Istanbul to Marseille. While on the sea voyage he is targeted by a gang of thieves, using a beautiful woman as a decoy. He is eventually assisted by another woman who is secretly in love with him.

Karlheinz Wendtland confirmed that the film was "designed with speed and all the refinements". Furthermore, he was of the opinion that the film adaptation was not lacking in humor and that it was "completely apolitical despite the director Steinhoff".
