Stanley Fields, born Walter L. Agnew, (May 20, 1883 – April 23, 1941) was an American actor.

Career[edit]

Fields spent seven years as boy soprano in the Trinity Church choir. He began his career as a newsboy but later became a professional boxer but as a result of a broken nose, left the ring and decided to try Vaudeville in partnership with Frank Fay. Thanks to Norma Talmadge who thought his broken nose gave him a ferocious appearance, he started on a film career with a screen debut as a gunman in her talkie, New York Nights.
