Warner Anderson acted in several films per-year during much of the 1940s, frequently as a military man or other authority figure. This paved the way for the role of Lieutenant Ben Guthrie in "The Lineup," a cop drama that ran for a decade beginning in 1954, as well as co-starring parts in films such as "The Caine Mutiny," released in the same year, and the science fiction classic "Destination Moon." By the 1960s, Anderson was a regular on the small screen, appearing in the first 100-plus episodes of the popular evening soap "Peyton Place" as newspaper editor Matthew Swain, whose occasional lack of tact brings him many enemies.
