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.
