Screenwriter and producer Monja Danischewsky may best be remembered for adapting Eric Ambler's The Light of Day into one of the finest crime caper movies in cinema, Topkapi (1964). Born in Russia, but raised in Great Britain from the age of eight, Danischewsky started out as a publicity director at Ealing Studios in 1938. His first produced script was Underground Guerillas (1944). In 1948, he directed the classic British comedy Whiskey Galore, considered by many critics the best film ever to come from Ealing. He stopped producing films after Two and Two Make Six (1962); his final screenwriting credit was the Robert Mitchum film Mister Moses (1965). The following year, Danischewsky published an autobiography, White Russian, Red Face.
