Benno Vigny (real name Benoit Philippe Weinfeld; 28 October 1889 – 31 October 1965) was a French-German novelist and screenwriter.

Life and works

Vigny was born in Commercy and grew up in Vienna. He moved to Berlin in the 1920s. There he began working as a screenwriter in collaboration with other writers, particularly for German-British co-productions.

In 1927, his novel Amy Jolly, die Frau aus Marrakesch (Amy Jolly, the Woman from Marrakesh) was published, which became the 1930 film Morocco in the USA, in which Marlene Dietrich made her Hollywood debut. Another novel, Nell John. Der Roman einer Verjüngten (Nell John, The Tale of a Rejuvenated Woman), also appeared in 1927.

At the beginning of the 1930s, Vigny went to Paris, where he continued to collaborate as a screenwriter for international co-productions. The little-known film Bariole, from this period, is his only work as a film director.

After this period, Vigny worked only occasionally as a screenwriter. His last screenplay was the critically acclaimed Der Verlorene (The Lost One) (1951), co-written with Peter Lorre, who also directed and acted in the film.

He died in Munich.
