Occupation Film director and producer
Years active 1916–38

Edward Godal was a British film producer and director. During the First World War Godal ran a training school for actors.[1] 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.[2] 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.[3] His producing career largely ended with the arrival of sound in 1929, and he made only one further film, in 1938.
