Hanging With Mr. Bunny
boblipton from New York City
20 October 2016
A rustic out in the wilds of Brooklyn comes across John Bunny with a
rope, preparing to hang himself. Instead of trying to stop him, he
rushes back to town so that everyone can come and witness this event in
this Vitagraph split reel comedy.
This movie is actually an amusing minor variation on an early Max
Linder movie, LE PENDU(1906). The Picwickian Bunny (usually with the
leading supporting player in this film, Flora Finch) was Vitagraph's
leading comic star until his death in 1915; in an era when most studios
hid their players' names lest they demand more money, Vitagraph put
Bunny's name in the movie's title.
