Here, thanks to a sharp-eyed Cameron McCasland, is a press clipping for Rondo Hatton in CAPTAIN FURY (1939). Amazing...

Looks good. Thanks for posting. Rondo was on Sven last night, or rather Sven showed House Of Horrors, which was better than I remembered. It looked like they padded Rondo up somewhat; around the shoulders, I mean. He looked more formidable than usual. Most of the time his face was enough to scare the kiddies. This time he actually looked strong.

In PEARL OF DEATH, he looked almost Kong-sized, and in HOUSE OF HORRORS they also made him formidable. But the people who made JUNGLE CAPTIVE, SPIDER WOMAN STRIKES BACK and even THE BRUTE MAN didn't bother, they let him go in front of the cameras "as is." He's not much taller than the women in those movies, not imposing at all.
