Creator: Rondo Hatton

He'd always have his Hatton.

Late Rondo Hatton was an American actor who appeared in various B Movies before his death in 1946.

His striking physical features were caused by a growth hormone disorder called acromegaly, which was also known to affect the late André the Giant and Richard Kiel.

Due to his condition, he'd usually play a thug of some kind. This lead to his role as the backbreaking murderer known as "The Creeper", who appeared in three Universal films late to his career, which cemented his status as a cult actor.
