Gland Guignol

Head and hands blown up, face like a troll
'Cause a gland's going out of control
You seek Hollywood work
Feeling squalid, you lurk
And expand, growing into the role.

David Cairns

Rondo Hatton lumbers through The Jungle Captive (Harold Young; 1945). The actor suffered from acromegaly, a hormonal disorder caused by the pituitary gland, which results in excessive growth in the bones of the head, hands and feet.
