Henry Richard "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)

Huntz Hall later played the increasingly buffoonish Horace Debussy "Sach" Jones in 48 "Bowery Boys" entries, graduating to top billing when Leo Gorcey left the series in 1955.

He appeared in films not associated with the comedy team, such as his portrayal of Pvt. Carraway in the war film, A Walk in the Sun, in 1945.

Hall died from congestive heart failure at the age of 79 in North Hollywood, California. He is interred in a niche at All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, California.

Hall was married three times and is survived by one son.
