Bobby Dunn

Bobby Dunn (28 August 1890 – 24 March 1937) was a comic actor who appeared in several Laurel & Hardy comedies, beginning with Duck Soup, and notably as the shoplifter in Tit for Tat. He was one of the original Keystone Kops in Hoffmeyer's Legacy. Born Robert V. Dunn in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Richard P. Dunn and Melissa Dunn, he started his career at Keystone Film Company production. He worked in a number of American motion-picture producer and director Mack Sennett's comedies, and lost one of his eyes in a stunt that went wrong (while falling into a barrel of water, his eye was caught by a floating matchstick on top) and had to wear a glass eye, which gave him a somewhat cross-eyed appearance. He later supported such comedians as Harold Lloyd, W.C. Fields and Charley Chase, before his early death. Bobby Dunn died on 24 March 1937 in Hollywood, California, at the age of 46.
