John Bunny Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

John Bunny (September 21, 1863 – April 26, 1915) was an American actor and was one of the first comic stars of the motion picture era. Between 1910 and his death in 1915 Bunny was one of the top stars of early silent film, as well as an early example of celebrity. At one time he was billed as “the man who makes more than the president”. His face was insured for $100,000 and his unexpected death made headlines around the world. Though quickly forgotten, Bunny paved the way for future plump comedians such as Fatty Arbuckle and Jackie Gleason.

1[on leaving the stage to make films] I have chosen a better thing. I shall live longer than Irving or Booth. Not because I deserve to, but because there is a record of me that they did not leave; the public can have me always the same, so long as the pictures are preserved.
2[on his reasons for leaving the stage to make films] He [the stage actor] doesn't get the big pay that a moving picture actor gets. I get $50,000 a year. How many other legitimate actors get that?
3How could I play Romeo with a figure like mine?
4[on entering films in 1910 after being an actor for 26 years and making $100 a week] Either I must make good on the screen or else starve to death.
1One of the first mass-merchandised film personalities...many dolls and figurines were made in his likeness, and all are highly prized collector's items today.
2Although he and Flora Finch made more than 250 comedy shorts together for Vitagraph, studio chief Albert E. Smith recalled that "they cordially hated each other".
3A theater-owner, New York City's Bunny Theatre was named after him. The stone bunny rabbit at the top of the theater building bears mute testimony to the transitory nature of silent film superstardom. The theater, which was eventually renamed the Nova, was closed in 2003.
4First person to play Santa Claus in a movie.
5The Bunny Theatre in NYC (now the Nova, at 3589 Broadway between 147th & 148th Sts.) was named after him, & still has 2 big stone bunny faces on its facade. Briefly (1914) a 2nd "Bunny Theatre" operated at 125 E. 116th St. In 1899/1900 John Bunny lived in NYC at 1486 5th Ave.
6Born at 115 Mott Street, in lower Manhattan, New York City.
7The American cinema's first major comedian.
8Joined Vitagraph in 1910.
9Made 260 shorts with Flora Finch between 1910 and 1914, which were known as 'Bunnygraphs', 'Bunnyfinches', and 'Bunnyfinchgraphs.'
