Among Ivins' more notable roles were the copy editor in [[Feature~V34236~Mystery of the Wax Museum~themysteryofthewaxmuseum]] (1933), the assistant home secretary in [[Feature~V87001~Charlie Chan in London~charliechaninlondon]], and the mysterious but ultimately benign Crenshaw in the serial [[Feature~V13497~Devil Dogs of the Air~devildogsoftheair]] (1937).
