Hank Patterson Facts
He had featured roles in both of the 1950's science fiction movies that involved giant spiders: "Tarantula" (1955) at Universal and "Earth vs. The Spider" (1958) (aka "The Spider") for producer Bert I Gordon.

He was a World War One veteran, in the United States Army, as a Calvary man. Like most cavalrymen, he had difficulty hearing the rest of his life, and was legally deaf by the time he started doing "Petticoat Junction". This caused difficulties on the set, so a special teacher, that taught deaf and blind children, was brought in to help him cue his lines.
