Donald Woods

Donald Woods was a Canadian-born American film and television actor whose career spanned six decades.

Born Ralph L. Zink in Brandon, Manitoba, Woods moved with his family to California and was raised in Burbank. He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley and made his film debut in 1928. His screen career was spent mostly in B movies, although he occasionally scored a role in a prestige feature film like Anthony Adverse, Watch on the Rhine, and The Bridge of San Luis Rey. In the early days of television, Woods appeared in Craig Kennedy, Criminologist, and such anthology series as The Philco Television Playhouse, Armstrong Circle Theatre, Robert Montgomery Presents, The United States Steel Hour, and General Electric Theater. He later was a regular on the short-lived series Tammy and made guest appearances on Bat Masterson, Wagon Train, Ben Casey, 77 Sunset Strip, Hawaiian Eye, Stoney Burke, Bonanza, Coronet Blue, Ironside, Alias Smith and Jones, and Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law, among many others.
