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:

Emperor Franz Josef: Tell me, is there still anything about me that annoys you?


Marshal Lee Sims: Now don't tell them church biddies I said so, but Nelly is quite a female. Ain't no lady, of course, but if some of the men in this town stood up to Dade's boys like she does...


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.
