Dependable and grave-looking, Warner Anderson enjoyed a good run of playing doctors, judges, senior officers and attorneys until the mid 1950s, after which he was lost almost entirely to long-running televisions series, latterly as editor Matthew Swain in Peyton Place. He made one appearance in a silent film as a child, and played in vaudeville and legitimate theater before coming to the screen.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
