The Films of John Bunny

Though little remembered today, John Bunny was the first internationally renowned film comedian. This DVD collection features four John Bunny shorts — or "Bunnygraphs" — made over four consecutive years of his career at Vitagraph. Among them are three "Bunnyfinches" with Bunny's usual co-star Flora Finch and one early Bunny short comedy co-starring Mabel Normand. As a bonus, this collection also includes an additional short from Vitagraph's other heavy comedian, Hughie Mack.
