One of 1940s Hollywood's most dignified leading men, Walter Pidgeon received two Best Actor nominations in the course of his career and starred in two Oscar-winning Best Pictures.

Pidgeon as Mr. Gruffydd in the Best Picture of 1941, John Ford's HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY. One of my favorite films ever, this masterpiece based on Richard Llewellyn's fabulous novel, features Pidgeon opposite Maureen O'Hara in one of the greatest love stories on film.

A poster from FORBIDDEN PLANET (1956), a successful and critically approved science-fiction version of Shakespeare's The Tempest. Pidgeon played the mad scientist Dr. Moribus, who built a one-man empire on the planet Altair-4 with the help of his daughter and Robby the Robot.
