A former actor, Irish playwright Monckton Hoffe set up shop in London in the early 1900s. Hoffe's popular plays Panthea and Four Days were both adapted for the screen, the first in 1917 and the second in 1951; his novel Cristilinda served as the basis for the Fox part-talkie Street Angel (1928). Making his own film debut as a screenwriter in 1922, Hoffe went to work at MGM, the most "British" of American film studios, in 1934. He collaborated on MGM's Busman's Honeymoon, filmed in 1940 at Metro's English "sister" studio Elstree. In 1941, he shared an Academy Award nomination for The Lady Eve. Monckton Hoffe left light entertainment behind during the war years, concentrating instead on British propaganda pictures.
