Harold Goodwin (22 October 1917 – 3 June 2004) was an English actor born in Wombwell, South Yorkshire, England.[1]

Acting career

Goodwin trained at RADA and was a stage actor at Liverpool repertory theatre for 3 years.[2] He appeared in numerous British films of the 1950s and 1960s, usually playing 'flat cap'-wearing working class characters from Northern England or low ranks in the military.

He had significant parts in the war films The Dam Busters (playing Guy Gibson's batman, 'Crosby'),[3] Bridge on the River Kwai and The Longest Day. He can also be seen in films such as The Ladykillers, Sea of Sand, Angels One Five and The Cruel Sea (in which he was the ASDIC operator).

Goodwin made hundreds of appearances in British television programmes such as Minder (as Dunning, episode Get Daley!, 1984) and a notable role in All Creatures Great and Small. Goodwin was a 'staple' of the popular 1980s sitcom, That's My Boy.

His last major television appearance was playing the part of Joss Shackleton, father to Vera Duckworth, in the ITV soap opera Coronation Street in 1991. His final television appearance was as a window cleaner in One Foot in the Grave in 1992.[2]
