Henry Hull Overview:

Character actor, Henry Hull, was born Henry Watterson Hull on Oct 3, 1890 in Louisville, KY. Hull died at the age of 86 on Mar 8, 1977 in Cornwall, UK and was laid to rest in Rockland Cemetery in Sparkill, NY.

MINI BIO:

Henry Hull was a gauntly handsome American actor who, in his youth, strayed all to rarely from the stage in silent days and was well into his forties before becoming a regular cinema performer. After a couple of leads, including a haunting portrayal of "The Werewolf of London", he settled into character roles as crusty types and barking voices (High Sierra 1942), often in period drama, and just as likely to pop up on one side of the law as the other.

Henry Hull Quotes:

Zerelda 'Zee' Cobb, later Zerelda 'Zee' James: If I could just think of some way to let you know how wrong you are.
Jesse Woodson James: No use, honey. It's just like I always told you: I hate the railroads... and when I hate, I've gotta do somethin' about it.
Major Rufus Cobb: That's the stuff! People ain't hating nowadays like they used to. They gettin' soft. I got to admit that I like a man that hauls off and hates good and hard. It's the lawyers - gol-dang it - it's the lawyers are messin' up the whole world! Why ten years ago, here in Liberty, we didn't have no lawyers and we got along fine. Man killed somebody, then somebody killed him, and the marshal shot 'em all and that was the end of it. But, look at it today: right here in Liberty we got hundreds of lawyers, thousands of 'em, as far as the eye can see: nothing but lawyers!
Zerelda 'Zee' Cobb, later Zerelda 'Zee' James: Uncle Rufe, there are only TWO lawyers in Liberty.
Major Rufus Cobb: Huh? Two? Is that all? Then they run around too much. Gol-dang it, I'm gonna write me an editorial about that.
Major Rufus Cobb: [he goes out into the newspaper office] Roy!
Roy: Yes, sir?
Major Rufus Cobb: Take an editorial on lawyers.
Roy: Liars?
Major Rufus Cobb: That'll do. We'll begin easy.
[he begins to dictate]
Major Rufus Cobb: Paragraph: If we are ever to have law and order in the West, the first thing we gotta do is take out all the lawyers and shoot 'em down like dogs.


Fred Winslow: My boy, never buy a foot of land more than five miles from home and not until you've seen it felt it, tasted it and smelled it. And at that, you might get bamboozled.


Charles D. 'Ritt' Rittenhouse: Well, folks, we're in business again!

Henry Hull Facts
Lived on an Old Lyme, Connecticut farm with his wife for over thirty years. Following her death in 1971 and after suffering a stroke, he moved to his daughter Joan's home in Cornwall, England.

Born in Louisville Kentucky, the son of William Madison and Elinor (Vaughn) Hull, he moved to New York City with his family in 1902 where his father, a newspaper editor, critic and editor, was offered a position in the Klaw and Erlanger theatre syndicate booking office.

His wife, Juliet Fremont, was the granddaughter of Civil War general and explorer John C. Fremont. In a 1960 episode of Bonanza, "The Mission," Hull played an aging former Army scout who served with honor under General Fremont.
