Rondo ala Quirk

By weapons of warfare, new-fangled
my features were horribly mangled
Condition acute,
they call me a brute
No wonder so many I've strangled

Known as "The Creeper," actor Rondo Hatton spent
his short career playing monstrous villains.
He suffered
from acromegaly, which studio publicity falsely attributed
his exposure to German mustard gas during World War 1.
