Henry "Huntz" Hall (August 15 1919 â€“ 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, California.

Spooks Run Wild is a 1941 film and the seventh film in the East Side Kids series, starring Bela Lugosi, Leo Gorcey, Huntz Hall, and Bobby Jordan. Released in 1941, it was directed by Phil Rosen, in his first and only outing in the series.Since the series inception in 1940, the East Side Kids films had been, for the most part, a well balanced mix between comedy, drama, and social relevance.
