In honor of the Lunar New Year, the Year of the Rabbit, here is John Bunny.
John Bunny was a popular performer in early Vitagraph comedies like "A Cure for Pokeritis" (1912), "Hearts and Diamonds" (1914) and "The Pickwick Papers" (1913). He was born (on 21-September-1863) to play Mr Pickwick. Bunny died in 1915 and the world mourned. Here is a detail from a Vitagraph ad in the 23-May-1914 Moving Picture World.
