He bought a house in Cork, Ireland, in 1971 in order to take advantage of Ireland's lean approach to the taxation of writers, but in 1981, he was declared bankrupt with tax debts of £53,000. Irish playwright and screenwriter Patrick Galvin commented: "Mankowitz had this enormous energy as a writer coupled with a terrific knack for dialogue. He was a born playwright and a very professional man.
He wrote several other musicals including Pickwick (1963) and Stand and Deliver (1972).
Introduced legendary producers Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli to each other. The two men partnered up to make the James Bond films. They returned the favor by hiring him to write the first draft of Dr. No (1962). But Wolf decided to have his name removed, thinking the film would be a huge flop. After seeing it, he asked to have his name re-inserted, but prints were already made.
He wrote screenplays of his own novels as well as The Millionairess (1960), The Waltz of the Toreadors, Casino Royale (1967), Black Beauty (1971), and The Day the Earth Caught Fire (1961).
Expresso Bongo (1959) was both a success on stage and film and led to Mankowitz becoming a theatrical impresario.
One of his most memorable films A Kid for Two Farthings (1955) followed in 1953.
A success, it was later adapted for television and a film (1954) and a West End musical.
Playwright, screenwriter and novelist Wolf Mankowitz was one of Britain's most prolific and successful writers. Once dubbed "the rising hope of British musical theatre," he lived an extravagant lifestyle, which included three luxury homes, although he was frequently in trouble with the taxman. Born in London's East End, his father Solomon was a Russian émigré who ran a second hand books stall. Educated at East Ham Grammar School he won a scholarship to Downing College, Cambridge where he edited an undergraduate magazine and worked in a bookshop part time. After leaving Cambridge he wrote several books about pottery and porcelain (his first love) before writing Make Me An Offer (1952).
