"I never heard him raise his voice in anger. I never heard him say a bad word about anyone, nor did I hear anyone say a bad word about him. He was a gentleman and a gentle man."

Walter Davis Pidgeon (September 23, 1897 – September 25, 1984) was a Canadian-American actor who appeared in a variety of films, from comedies to dramas to science fiction. His films ranged from science fiction, like Forbidden Planet, to movie musicals, like Funny Girl and a televised musical based on Cinderella in 1965.

Pidgeon is also known for his numerous appearances alongside British actress Greer Garson, appearing in eight films together, usually as a Happily Married couple or two youngsters courting. One of these films included the wartime drama Mrs. Miniver, which was often joked as one of the biggest reasons that many signed up to help the war effort.
