Briton John Dighton wrote for the stage until 1936, when he made the transition to films. Dighton's 1940s output included comedian Will Hay's last starring features, as well as the 1947 adaptation of Dickens' Nicholas Nickleby. Most gainfully employed by Ealing Studios, he collaborated on the screenplays of such sublime comedies as Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949) and The Man in the White Suit (1953), sharing an Academy Award nomination for the latter. He earned a second nomination for the American-financed Roman Holiday (1953). Two of his more popular stage plays, Happiest Days of Your Life and The Passionate Sentry, were successfully adapted for the screen by Dighton himself. John Dighton's final screen credit was his cinemadaptation of Shaw's The Devil's Disciple, penned in collaboration with Roland Kibbee.
