Laurel Goodwin


  1. Joey Heatherton, Where Love Has Gone, 1963.   We all knew where this murky melo came from. Harold Robbins’ sleazy novel, of course. More essentially from the real, raw Hollywod life he pinched it from. About poor Cheryl Crane, driven to kill the apallingly named gangster Johnny Stompanato to stop him beating to death her mother, Lana Turner.  Patty Duke, Natalie Wood’s TV actress sister, Lana,  and the unknown Laurel Goodwin, Deborah Walley, were supplanted  by  the prettier but weak Heatherton as The Daughter. In Robbins’ version, she’s also in love with The Guy and was trying to kill The Mom when he got in The Way. Yuck! Many times over.  In short careers Goodwin and  Walley, both scored a movie with Elvis.
  2. Tippy Walker, The World of Henry Orient, 1964. Seen for one of the two fans stalking celebrated pianist Peter Sellers.   Laurel  quit acting in 1969.
