Storyline

Too fat for comfort, and fearing an increase in avoirdupois, Bunny purchases a Vapor Bath, guaranteed to make the fat thin and do the trick with neatness. In his anxiety to make a trial of the bath he forgets to lock the library door. He places a newspaper on top of the enclosure, and with his head protruding like a turtle, he tries to read the news of the day while he is taking off weight. The door blows open and the draft sweeps the newspaper off the top of the bath. In his efforts to secure it and his fear of the maid entering the room he finds himself in a pretty fix. He is moving about like a sandwich man when a sneak thief enters, and finding our fat friend helpless, proceeds to help himself to Bunny's clothing, containing his coin and jewelry. Giving Bunny the laugh, and gracefully bidding him a fond farewell, he closes the door and leaves.

There is plenty of fun in his facial expression
17 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A "Bunnygraph" in which a fat man to please his wife tries to reduce his weight. Working in the gymnasium, he gained five pounds in one day, so he ordered a vapor bath cabinet and was brash enough to start it going. We only see his head sticking out of it. A sneak-thief enters, but the fat man is in the bath and helpless. There is plenty of fun in his facial expression as he entertains the thief, who for a joke puts a derby en his head, but leaves him tied up in the cabinet for he can't open it. His wife brings home some friends to tea and the fat man is in the cabinet, in the parlor. They don't understand why he won't let them in and think he is crazy. When the doctor comes the fat man has smashed the cabinet. - The Moving Picture World, January 13, 1912
