Bobby Dunn (28 August 1890 – 24 March 1937) was a comic actor who appeared in several Laurel and Hardy comedies, beginning with Duck Soup,[citation needed] and notably as the shoplifter in Tit for Tat. He was one of the original Keystone Kops in Hoffmeyer's Legacy.[1]

Career[edit]

Born Robert V. Dunn in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Richard P. 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.[citation needed] He later supported such comedians as Harold Lloyd, W.C. Fields and Charley Chase, before his early death.
