An alumnus of the Yale School of Drama, Alan Baxter came to films in 1935 after three seasons' stage work. Though occasionally cast in a leading role, Baxter was more convincing as a character actor, usually playing roles with sinister undertones. Hitchcock devotees will remember Baxter as the bespectacled, implicitly homosexual Nazi spy in the Hoover Dam sequences of Saboteur (1942). Alan Baxter continued accepting supporting roles into the 1970s, often portraying big-time gangsters or disreputable politicians.

QUOTES FROM Alan Baxter CHARACTERS

Gen. Merrin says: To Lawson: Look, I'm not your commanding officer. I can't influence your decision, and I don't want to. But I want to give this to you, and I want to give it to you straight. We need the help of the German people. And you don't get the help of the German people...by sentencing their leaders to stiff prison sentences. The thing to do is survive, isn't it? Survive as best we can, but survive.
