Square-faced, reliable-looking, solidly built British actor who projected honesty and integrity with gritty conviction. He abandoned a career on the Stock Exchange for studies at RADA, made his stage debut at 26 and, after a late start to his cinema career, enjoyed a particularly good run of film roles from 1942 to 1950.

Walter Fitzgerald Quotes:

Dr. Fenton: Death is like a business. It has to be attended to.

Dr. Livesey: When do we sail?
Squire Trelawney: Better ask Captain Smollett. Five days, he's been selecting a crew. Six men, all he's got to show for it.
Dr. Livesey: Cautious, eh?
Squire Trelawney: Cautious? He pries into every seaman's past like a judge at a quarter session.

I didn't waste my time poring over his credentials. All the credentials I needed was a taste of his ham and his buttered eggs!

Katie O'Gill: Your lordship, why didn't ye tell us ye were comin'? I'd have opened the manor house for you.
Lord Fitzpatrick: Oh I'll not be stoppin' here long enough for that. Where's your father?
Katie O'Gill: Well now, let me see, um... I heard him sayin' somthin' about cuttin' the weeds around the summer house. I think he'll have gone to have the smithy sharpen his scythe. I'll fetch him for ye, your lordship.
