  1. Rondo Hatton suffered from a medical condition that caused the bones of his face to continue to grow, disfiguring his appearance. Hollywood liked to use him as a monster or a brute, typical of the time. The disease would eventually kill him. His wikipedia article is worth a read if you’re not familiar with the man.
