Huntz Hall, star of more than 100 "Bowery Boys" and "Dead End Kids" films in the 1930s through the 1950s, of heart failure. He was 78 ... Mario Zacchini, the "human cannonball" in a family of circus performers, of kidney failure. He was 87. In their heyday in the 1920s, '30s and '40s, the Zacchini brothers wowed crowds as they catapulted out of cannons at speeds up to 90 mph, flying over Ferris wheels.
