~Hommel Portrait of James Hall~
A blossoming student athlete in his home town of Dallas, James Hall left home at the age of 14 to
join a theatrical company. Four years later he put his career on hold to serve as an artilleryman in
World War I. Thriving as a musical performer in the 1920s, the boyish, ingratiating Hall was signed
to a Paramount movie contract by studio executive Jesse Lasky. A moderate successful silent film
leading man, Hall's greatest role came with the talkies, when he was co-starred with Ben Lyon and
Jean Harlow in Howard Hughes' aviation epic Hell's Angels (1930). Within two years, however,
James Hall was out of films completely; he died in 1940, three months shy of his 40th birthday.
