Biography

While not as well known as his contemporaries, film director Henry Levin proved prolific, helming 55 projects in a career that spanned nearly 40 years. Levin's show business career began as a stage actor and director. He entered the film industry in 1943 as a dialogue director, and within a year he had taken on the director's chair for the she-wolf horror flick "Cry of the Werewolf". He churned out a number of films in the following years, but Levin hit his stride in the 1960s with a string of whimsical sex comedies, among them: the Bobby Darin/Sandra Dee husband training comedy "If a Man Answers", "Come Fly With Me", which centers on three beautiful stewardesses' search for love and money, and the beach-set co-ed comedy "Where the Boys Are". As Levin reached his 60s, he began to slow down, taking on fewer projects and trying his hand at television, helming a trio of episodes of the long-running primetime soap opera "Knots Landing". His final production was the made-for-TV family comedy "Scout's Honor", a movie which featured "Diff'rent Strokes" star Gary Coleman. In a strangely poetic turn of fate, the final day of the project's production, was also the last day of his life. He was 70 years old.
