Walter Wischniewsky (16 September 1912 – 1 February 1995) was a German film editor who worked on over a hundred productions during his career. Wischniewsky also sometimes worked as an assistant director. Wischniewsky began his career during the Nazi era, but most productions he worked on were post-Second World War. He edited several rubble films, including The Berliner (1948).[1] During the 1950s and 1960s he became one of the mainstays of German commercial cinema, working on the long-running Edgar Wallace and Karl May series. Wischniewsky edited Fritz Lang's Indian-shot The Indian Tomb and The Tiger of Eschnapur (both 1959).[2]
