Cordell Hull - Fictional Appearance or Mention

Fictional Appearance or Mention

In the Worldwar series of alternate history novels by Harry Turtledove, Hull becomes president at some point in 1944, following the deaths of first Vice President Wallace and then President Roosevelt (the then existing rule of succession to the Presidency called for the Secretary of State to take that office if there were no Vice President).

Hull was portrayed by veteran actor George Macready in the 1970 film Tora! Tora! Tora!

Actor Charles Trowbridge played Hull in the 1941 film Sergeant York.

Hull is one of the Presidential Cabinet members who are characters in the musical Annie.

During the scene at the dinner table in the 2005 film Wedding Crashers, "Grandma" Mary Cleary (played by actress Ellen Albertini Dow) mentions Hull (though only by his Cabinet position, rather than by name) was "her late husband".

There was a very small chain of hotels named after him (which he allegedly owned or co-owned) in Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky. One of which was the Cordell Hull Hotel in downtown Gallatin, TN, which in app. 1971 was used to house the first-ever classes of the new Volunteer State Community College while the campus was being built. This was one of the hotel's last official uses.

Hull is mentioned by name in the 1937 calypso song "FDR in Trinidad" popularized by Attila the Hun, and also by Ry Cooder on his 1972 album Into the Purple Valley.

Hull is prominently featured in Robert Ludlum's novel "The Scarlatti Inheritance".

Famous quotes containing the words mention, fictional and/or appearance:

    Don’t mention the war.
    John Cleese (b. 1939)

    One of the proud joys of the man of letters—if that man of letters is an artist—is to feel within himself the power to immortalize at will anything he chooses to immortalize. Insignificant though he may be, he is conscious of possessing a creative divinity. God creates lives; the man of imagination creates fictional lives which may make a profound and as it were more living impression on the world’s memory.
    Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)

    I think I am one of those who can manage not to take on a completely different appearance under their own glance.
    Jean Rostand (1894–1977)
