Biography by Hal Erickson

A former stockbroker, British actor Walter Fitzgerald was in his late 20s when he began his theatrical training at RADA. Fitzgerald made his professional stage bow in 1922 and his first film appearance in 1930. His best-remembered movie roles include Simon Fury in Blanche Fury (1946), Dr. Fenton in The Fallen Idol (1949) and Squire Trelawny in Treasure Island (1950). Walter Fitzgerald made his final film appearance in the opening scenes of Damn the Defiant (1961), as the admiral who listens to--and then disregards--ship's captain Alec Guinness's complaints about maritime cruelty.
