Movie studios are a poor way to launder money. Overhead is incredible and profits and losses too closely monitored (and its usually losses). Service industries are best. I believe the Vatican Bank is very good at it (for a moderate piece of the action) but Pope Francis is trying to get them out of the business.

to bearwku82: Harry Herkelshimer wrestled under the name Hairy Hercules, which is why the name appears as both Harry and Hairy.
To chiphilton, the Hairy Hercules story arc was very, very early Berrill. Most of the Berrill strips have been published in trade paperback (although I suspect they are mostly out-of-print). They were not published chronologically, however, which can distort the recall of time relationships.
In answer to chiphilton. Gil beat Herk in a high school competition. Gil went to the army and Herk became professional wrestler. Gil got a job coaching and Herk’s tour took him to New Milford. He set up a charity match with Gil and was mopping the floor with him, but seeing how much the students loved Gil he let Gil win.
Hairy Hercules was the professional name of a guy Gil had wrestled back in high school. I think he appeared in the strip in the early 1960s
