Bobby Dunn
born: 28 August 1887
Milwaukee, Wisconsin,
United States of America
died: 24 March 1937
Hollywood, California,
United States of America
(heart ailment, age 49)
American comic actor who started his career at Keystone.  He was blinded in one eye after a stunt went wrong (while falling into a barrel of water, his eye was caught by a floating matchstick on top) and took to wearing a glass eye, which gave him a somewhat cross-eyed appearance.  He is probably best remembered to Laurel and Hardy fans as the friendly shoplifter who continues to raid the Boys' electrical store in Tit For Tat.
