Hobart Henley?

  1. “Oh for God’s sakes, Walter — he’s only an agent!”

  2. And his friends started calling Jennings Lang just Jenning singular, after Wanger’s shot deprived him of a nut.

    Still, we got Riot in Cell Block 11 out of it.

    And then JL became a producer too, perhaps trying to live down the “only an agent” line.

  3. It’s a shame that then-producer Henry Hobart never produced a film by Hobart Henley.

  4. Better, it’s a shame they never married.

  5. John Seal Says:

    When are these old Paramounts (not to mention Universals) going to be freed from bondage? We’re out here waiting for them. I don’t understand why Universal thinks these films have no commercial value.

  6. Asides from their horror titles, Universal seem to have no interest in anything in their early catalogue. I wish they would strike a deal with TCM and start airing stuff. You would think they would have noticed what a great job Warners is doing.
