Rondo Hatton Facts
Both "House of Horrors" and "Brute Man" were released after Hatton's death. Additionally, Universal did not release "Brute Man" but rather sold the rights to Producer's Releasing Corporation (PRC), ostensibly because they were discontinuing distributing b-films, but with all references to Universal even as producer deleted from all credits and advertising.

He played three different "Creeper" characters. In "Pearl Of Death" he is "The Oxton Creeper", a British mute. In "House Of Horrors" and "Brute Man" he can talk. He is unnamed in "House of Horrors" but in "The Brute Man" he has the character name "Hal Moffet.".

By all accounts a kind, sensitive man, sources differ on whether he was pragmatic or extremely unhappy at the way Universal exploited his disfigurement; but, as he was under contract, he could do nothing about it.
