Edward Godal was a British film producer and director. During the First World War Godal ran a training school for actors. He became a leading independent producer of British films after the war, becoming managing director of the small but ambitious British & Colonial, based at Walthamstow Studios from 1918 to 1924. He later became involved with plans to make colour films at the newly built Elstree Studios and a proposed big-budget adaptation of an H.G. Wells novel, neither of which came to anything. His producing career largely ended with the arrival of sound in 1929, and he made only one further film, in 1938.
