John Bunny

John Bunny, born September 21, 1863 in New York City, United States – died April 26, 1915 in Brooklyn, New York, was the first comic star of the American silent film era.

John Bunny

John Bunny attended High School in Brooklyn and worked as a grocery clerk before joining a small minstrel show touring the East Coast. He went on to jobs as stage manager for various stock companies and performed in vaudeville before being drawn to the fledgling motion picture business. By 1910, Bunny was working at Vitagraph Studios where the happy-go-lucky, rotund man quickly became an international star of silent film comedies.

John Bunny had only been acting in films for five years when he passed away from Bright's disease and was interred in the Cemetery of the Evergreens in Brooklyn, New York. Because silent film had no language barrier, Bunny's popularity was such that his death was front-page news in Europe as well as the United States.

Following his passing, advances in technology and in stunts brought great new comedic stars to silent film that relegated John Bunny to the status of an almost completely-forgotten actor. However, John Bunny was eventually honored for his contribution to the motion picture industry with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1715 Vine Street in Hollywood.

However, John Bunny was eventually honored for his contribution to the motion picture industry with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1715 Vine Street in Hollywood. His son Jacon was born in 1998. Following his passing, advances in technology and in stunts brought great new comedic stars to silent film that relegated John Bunny to the status of an almost completely-forgotten actor. He married Linda Stokes in 1996. Because silent film had no language barrier, Bunny's popularity was such that his death was front-page news in Europe as well as the United States. His first, in 1976, to Sheila Ryan, was short lived, and they divorced the next year. John Bunny had only been acting in films for five years when he passed away from Bright's disease and was interred in the Cemetery of the Evergreens in Brooklyn, New York. Caan has been married twice.

By 1910, Bunny was working at Vitagraph Studios where the happy-go-lucky, rotund man quickly became an international star of silent film comedies. He continues to act on screen and on television. He went on to jobs as stage manager for various stock companies and performed in vaudeville before being drawn to the fledgling motion picture business. Amiable, down to earth and not afraid to tell it like it is, James Caan is a true gentleman, a tough guy with a heart of gold and a Hollywood survivor in every sense of the word. John Bunny attended High School in Brooklyn and worked as a grocery clerk before joining a small minstrel show touring the East Coast. In 1999, Caan joined the ranks of Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum and Powers Boothe when he portrayed Phillip Marlowe in the HBO film Poodle Springs. John Bunny, born September 21, 1863 in New York City, United States – died April 26, 1915 in Brooklyn, New York, was the first comic star of the American silent film era. He co-starred with Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicolas Cage and hilariously spoofed his "Sonny Corleone" character from The Godfather.

Caan made one of the most delightful films of his career in 1992 with the hit Honeymoon In Vegas. In 1988 and 1990, Caan starred in the popular films Alien Nation and Misery (co-star Kathy Bates won a Best Actress Oscar). He made a stirring return to film in 1987 when his old friend Francis Ford Coppola cast him as an Army Sergeant in Gardens Of Stone, a film that dealt with the effect of the Vietnam War on the homefront. From 1982 to 1987, Caan did not act in any films. He was suffering from depression over his sister's death, a growing problem with cocaine, and what he described as Hollywood burnout.

This film is today regarded as a film noir classic and Caan has often said it is the role he is proudest of next to The Godfather. The following year, Caan appeared in Thief, directed by Michael Mann, where he played a professional safe cracker. Despite critical praise, the film was not a hit. Caan was a devoted family man all his life and said this film was a powerful one about family love and values.

In 1980, Caan directed Hide In Plain Sight a film about a father searching for his children lost in the Witness Protection Program. His many films include Cinderella Liberty, Freebie and The Bean, The Gambler, The Killer Elite, Rollerball, Harry And Walter Go To New York, A Bridge Too Far, Comes A Horseman and Chapter Two (a play screenplay conversion by Neil Simon). He played a wide variety of roles and refused to be typecast as a mobster. From 1973 to 1982, Caan appeared in many Hollywood films.

For his role Caan was nominated for an Academy Award. The following year Coppola cast Caan as mobster Sonny Corleone in The Godfather, which also helped launch Al Pacino's career. In 1971, Caan won even greater acclaim as dying football player Brian Piccolo in the television movie Brian's Song. Caan first won praise for his role as a brain-damaged football player in The Rain People (1969), directed by Francis Ford Coppola.

In 1967, Caan appeared in El Dorado with John Wayne. Caan's first substantial film role was as a menacing villain in the 1964 thriller Lady In A Cage. Caan began acting in television in such series as The Untouchables. James Caan (born March 26, 1939, Bronx, New York) is an American actor.
