Robert Hudson Walker was an actor from the United States. He played the villain in Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train (1951), which was released shortly before his death. He battled alcoholism and mental illness, which were compounded by his terrible divorce from Hanna Hertelendy.

Walker starred in Leo McCarey’s My Son John (1952), which was released at the height of the Red Scare. He died before the film’s completion, and perspectives from his death scene in Strangers on a Train were merged into another theatrical death scene near the conclusion.
