Born in 1887 in Iowa,[citation needed] Hatton was part of a vaudeville act that went to Hollywood in 1911.[1]

Hatton enjoyed a successful silent film career, including a stint of being paired in 1920s comedies with Wallace Beery.[1] However, during the sound era his career soon skidded and he usually played smaller supporting roles, including the tobacco-chewing, rip snorting Rusty Joslin in The Three Mesquiteers Western B picture series.

He also appeared in the TV series Adventures of Superman.

Hatton died in 1971 in Palmdale, California.

He has a star in the Motion Picture section of the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1708 Vine Street.[2]
