Henry David “Bud” Molin, A.C.E., (May 26, 1925 – May 21, 2007) was an American film editor and television director.
Born in Los Angeles, California, Molin enlisted in the United States Army, and served in World War II before beginning his career. He first worked at the Columbia Pictures film library and then became an assistant film editor.
Most of Molin's best known work is in the comedy genre, having edited shows such as I Love Lucy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, and I Spy. He often worked with Dann Cahn and also collaborated with Carl Reiner on some his comedies of the 1970s and 80s, which ranged from the commercial success of Oh, God! and The Jerk to experimental pictures such as Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid and Bert Rigby, You're a Fool. Although best known for comedy, he also edited dramas as well, such as They Call Me Mister Tibbs! and Halls of Anger, both dealing with racial relations.
As his career progressed, Molin branched out to directing the television series Good Heavens, and served as the assistant director on the film Up the Academy. He also was a post-production executive for the TV series Barney Miller. In 1993, Molin came out of retirement to edit his last film, the comedy Fatal Instinct, a film by friend Carl Reiner.
On May 21, 2007, Molin died at his home at the age of 81 in Rancho Mirage, California.
