Henry Levin Biography

  • Profession: Director
  • Born: Jun 5, 1909
  • Died: May 1, 1980

University of Pennsylvania alumnus Henry Levin did a little bit of everything during his years on Broadway: actor, director, stage manager, dialogue coach. In was in the latter capacity that Levin was brought to Hollywood in 1943. He made his film directorial bow with Columbia's [[Feature~V11701~Cry of the Werewolf~cryofthewerewolf]] (1944), an inexpensive but atmospheric lycanthropy meller. Columbia kept Levin busy in virtually every genre, from swashbuckler ([[Feature~V84364~The Bandit of Sherwood Forest~thebanditofsherwoodforest]]) to screwball comedy ([[Feature~V101898~The Mating of Millie~thematingofmillie]]) to musical ([[Feature~V26480~Jolson Sings Again~jolsonsingsagain]]) to psychological drama ([[Feature~V93987~The Guilt of Janet Ames~theguiltofjanetames]]). Levin moved to 20th Century-Fox in 1952, where he occasionally produced as well as directed. His most pleasant memory of his Fox years was his association with waspish comic actor [[Performer~P75151~Clifton Webb~cliftonwebb]], whom Levin directed in [[Feature~V103092~Mister Scoutmaster~mrscoutmaster]] (1953), [[Feature~V107569~The Remarkable Mr. Pennypacker~theremarkablemrpennypacker]] (1959) and [[Feature~V95426~Holiday for Lovers~holidayforlovers]] (1959). Shortly after completing work on the definitive "spring break" picture [[Feature~V54229~Where the Boys Are~wheretheboysare]] (1960), Levin journeyed to Italy to helm the oddball Arabian nights comedy [[Feature~V120348~The Wonders of Alladin~alladin]] (1961) -- starring, of all people, [[Performer~P53349~Donald O'Connor~donaldoconnor]]. Many of Henry Levin's final projects were tongue-in-cheek espionage escapades along the lines of [[Feature~V42186~Murderer's Row~row]] (1966) and [[Feature~V97878~Kiss the Girls and Make Them Die~operazioneparadiso]] (1967). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
