Walter Pidgeon

Highest Rated: 100% Executive Suite (1954)

Lowest Rated: 25% Two Minute Warning (1976)

Birthday: Sep 23, 1897

Birthplace: Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada

Handsome, dignified performer, most typically in intelligent, gentlemanly roles, in lead and supporting film parts from the late 1920s. Possessing an attractive singing voice which was almost never heard once he achieved stardom, Pidgeon performed quite creditably in a number of operettas of the early sound years, including such worthy entries in the cycle like "Sweet Kitty Bellairs," "Viennese Nights" (both 1930) and "Kiss Me Again" (1931). He later played smart city slickers, typically second leads who palled around with the hero or lost the woman to a bigger male star; entries here included "Big Brown Eyes" (1936), "Saratoga" (1937) and "Too Hot to Handle" (1938).
