Motion Picture Screenwriter. As head of the Hal Roach Studio's editorial department from 1919 to 1932, he created humorous title cards for virtually all that company's silent films, including those that starred Harold Lloyd, Laurel & Hardy, Charley Chase, and the "Our Gang" series. He was less successful writing comic dialogue for Roach talking movies. In all he received credit for over 300 films. Born in Logan County, Ohio, some sources list 1884 as the year of his birth. He was a sportswriter for the “Los Angeles Examiner” before joining Roach in 1916. Nicknamed "Beanie", he was known as an eccentric character who rarely laughed and always had a slew of cats prowling around his office. After leaving Roach, Walker did mostly uncredited story work at Universal and Paramount. He died of a heart attack.
