Henry "Huntz" Hall (August 15, 1919 – January 30, 1999) was an American radio,       
theatrical, and motion picture performer perhaps best known for his acting in         
the "Dead End Kids" movies such as Angels with Dirty Faces (1938). Hall later         
played the increasingly buffoonish Horace Debussy "Sach" Jones in 48 inexpensive       
but profitable "Bowery Boys" entries, graduating to top billing when Leo Gorcey       
left the series in 1955.                                                               
He died from congestive heart failure at the age of 79. Huntz Hall is interred         
in a niche at All Saints Episcopal Church, Pasadena, Los Angeles County,
