Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

(1890–1977), actor. Like his brother Shelley Hull, this handsome leading man was born in Louisville, Kentucky. He made his name largely in weakling roles such as the degenerate Henry Potter in The Man Who Came Back (1916), the seemingly diffident suitor Paul Jones in The Cat and the Canary (1922), the barber George Randall in Lulu Belle (1926), and the black sheep Baron von Gaigern in Grand Hotel (1930). Hull also won success as the shy hero Richard Winslow in The Youngest (1924). In later years he served as the replacement to the original lead in Springtime for Henry, then created the part of the shiftless sharecropper Jeeter Lester in Tobacco Road (1933). Thereafter, he rarely enjoyed success and eventually accepted supporting roles.
