In his day, John Bunny was one of the greatest comedy draws in the film business. Enormously fat, with a face like a Tenniel illustration for ALICE IN WONDERLAND, he starred in hundreds of films for Vitagraph -- often with hatchet-faced Flora Finch -- and he was so popular that they used his names in pictures he starred in -- highly unusual in an era when most movie players were anonymous.
