Walter Supper (8 April 1887 – 3 March 1943) was a German screenwriter.[1] Supper worked on more than thirty screenplays during his career, and also worked occasionally as an actor and director.

Supper refused to divorce his Jewish wife under Nazi pressure, which effectively ended his career. He eventually committed suicide with his wife when it became clear she was about to be arrested.
