A walker is a walking tool for old and slightly disabled people.

It is also someone who walks, see also pedestrian.

Walker is a movie based on the life story of William Walker[?], the American fillibuster who invaded Mexico in the 1850s and made himself President of Nicaragua shortly thereafter. The film stars Ed Harris, Marlee Matlin (as Walker's mute lover Ellen Martin), Peter Boyle (as Cornelius Vanderbilt, his financier), and Miguel Sandoval (as Parker French). It was written by Rudy Wurltizer (PAT GARRETT & BILLY THE KID, TWO LANE BLACKTOP), produced by Lorenzo O'Brien, and photographed by Dave Bridges. The film, which is full of anachronisms such as helicopters and zippo lighters, was made in Nicaragua during the American-sponsored Contra War.
