Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The exploitation of actor Rondo Hatton was not one of Hollywood's finer moments. Like Siamese twins Daisy and Violet Hilton and countless midgets and dwarves, Hatton was used for his deformity--in his case, acromegaly--and showcased as a "freak act" in a series of low-budget horror films.
