Walter Cartier (March 29, 1922 – August 17, 1995) was a professional boxer turned actor, originally from the Bronx in New York City, New York.
He became a professional boxer after World War II. Film director Stanley Kubrick's first film, Day of the Fight (1951), featured Cartier and his twin brother, Vincent. After this, Walter Cartier tried his hand at acting in other films such as Somebody Up There Likes Me (1956) and television.
Today, he is best known for his role in the classic United States sitcom The Phil Silvers Show, appearing as the mild-mannered Private Claude Dillingham. One memorable episode was written around Cartier and his boxing skills.
His ancestry was Irish, his grandfather having changed the family name from McCarthy to Cartier.
