Friday the Thirteenth (German: Freitag, der 13.) is a 1949 West German comedy crime film directed by Erich Engels and starring Fritz Kampers, Angelika Hauff, and Fita Benkhoff.

It was made by Terra Film in 1944, but was not released before the end of the Second World War. It received its much delayed premiere in 1949. It was one of several Nazi-era productions that were given releases in the years after the end of the war.[1]

The film's sets were designed by the art director Artur Günther.
