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.
