      Walter Abel

      Walter Abel

      Highest Rated: 100% Holiday Inn (1942)

      Lowest Rated: 10% Raintree County (1957)

      Birthday: Jun 6, 1898

      Birthplace: St. Paul, Minnesota, USA

      A prolific staple of Hollywood cinema for over a generation, Walter Abel may not have duplicated some of his early New York stage successes in leading roles once he relocated to the film world out West, but his was a versatile and an intelligent talent. His attractively open face, with its trademark trim mustache, lent a dapper yet sincere quality to the many harried professionals he played so well.
