  • Not to be confused with the character actor of the same name, London-born Leslie Goodwins came to the U.S. in the 1930s, almost immediately securing work as a director of Edgar Kennedy and Leon Errol 2-reelers at RKO Radio. Promoted to features in 1936, Goodwins became a member in good standing of RKO's "B"-unit directorial pool. His best-known films include the Wally Brown-Alan Carney vehicles and several of Lupe Velez' "Mexican Spitfire" entries. Occasionally, he paid visits to other studios like Paramount (Glamour Boy) and Universal (The Mummy's Curse). His last theatrical features include the Buddy Hackett-Hugh O'Brian effort Fireman Save My Child (1954) and the five-day wonder Paris Follies of 1956. In addition, Leslie Goodwins churned out scores of 30-minute episodes of such TV series as Topper and Tammy.
