Will a Nikon speedlight SB-15 from a film camera work on a Nikon D-80? Thank you

It will not work in TTL mode but will work in auto or manual. I'm not sure whether the camera will detect the flash or not. If the Flash ready light isn't lit in the viewfinder then the flash has not been detected and you should shoot in M mode so that you can set the shutter speed to a maximum of 1/200 and the aperture as required by the flash.
