Anderson had a small part in a film in 1915. A contemporary newspaper article about the movie Sunbeam, in which Anderson appeared in 1917, noted, "Warner Anderson is one of the cleverest children in motion pictures."[3] "He made his adult screen debut in This Is the Army in 1943.[1]

He had supporting parts in several films through the years. They included The Caine Mutiny, Blackboard Jungle, and Destination Tokyo.[4] Operation Burma with Errol Flynn.
