Trivia (1)

A Brooklyn undertaker whose real name was Hugh McGowan, he was spotted one day sleeping on a park bench by producers J. Stuart Blackton and Albert E. Smith of Vitagraph Pictures. Vitagraph's biggest star at the time was short, fat comic John Bunny, and Blackton and Smith thought that since Bunny was so popular, another short and fat comic might be popular too, so they woke him up and offered him a job.
