"Man cannot degrade woman without himself falling into degradation; he cannot elevate her without at the same time elevating himself." -- Alexander Walker
Alexander Walker (23 March 1930 - 15 July 2003) was a film critic, born in Portadown, Northern Ireland. He worked for the Birmingham Post in the 1950s, before becoming film critic of the London Evening Standard in 1960, a role he held until his death in 2003. He was a highly influential figure within the film industry, and also wrote a number of books including one on Stanley Kubrick, a history of the impact made on Hollywood by the rise of the talkies (The Shattered Silents) and a biography of Elizabeth Taylor. His most notable work is a history of British cinema, spread over three books: Hollywood England, National Heroes and Icons in the Fire.

From the early 1960s onwards he assembled a collection of more than 200 drawings and prints by modern artists, which were bequeathed to the British Museum upon his death in 2003. In 1968, he was a member of the jury at the 18th Berlin International Film Festival.

He is portrayed by Tim Jahn in a film, The Tony Blair Witch Project (2000).[1]
