CHARLES D. HALL
Born in England 1899.
Art production designer in Hollywood, who created some of the memorably striking sets to Universal's early horror classics, such as the Dracula Castle set, the Frankenstein Castle set, and the Art Deco set for THE BLACK CAT, which would be re-used repeatedly in Universal's later horror films and serials. Not to be confused with Charles Hall (1899- 1959), the comic foil in many of Laurel and Hardy's two reelers.

VICTOR AND EDWARD HALPERIN
Director and Producer. Both men were born in Chicago. Victor, born during August 1895, was educated at the University of Wisconsin, while his brother Edward attended Northwestern University. Victor began his career as a stage actor, and had directed several silent films before venturing into horror territory with his brother. Reportedly the pair had made over two dozen films by the 1940's, but seemingly only WHITE ZOMBIE is ever paid any attention.
After the sound took hold on the industry, the brothers concluded that dialogue hampered the medium, so they resolved to use as little dialogue as possible, keeping it only for the progression of the film's story.
Victor Halperin died in such obscurity that the date of his death remains uncertain.

Rondo's ancestors hailed from Cheltenham, England when they emigrated to the States during the 1850's. From 1912, the Hatton family resided in Tampa, Florida. Rondo was active in all sports during his school years at Hillsborough High School, but then signed up for the military, and was posted to France during World War One. While fighting near Paris, Rondo breathed in an unsubstantiated amount of German poison gas and was hospitalised for an indefinate period. His lungs had been damaged, but a side effect of the gas was the disfiguring disease acromegaly, that attacked his pituitary glands causing an increased secretion of the growth hormones. After being discharged, he returned to Tampa and began a new career as a newspaper man. Whilst on an assignment to cover the first all-talking film HELL HARBOR shot in Florida, director Henry King asked him to play a part in the film, and enticed him to Hollywood. He moved to Hollywood in 1936 where King cast him in his next film. After his appearance in THE PEARL OF DEATH, Universal groomed him as an addition to their stable of monsters. Hatton died of a heart attack in Beverly Hills, California on February 2nd 1946.
