Fatty and Mabel's Simple Life
During the second reel's chase sequence, Mabel's enraged father turns to the local police for help, and gets the assistance of a cross-eyed cop played by Bobby Dunn. Dunn was a diminutive comic stuntman who was recognized for a high-dive act, and recognizable for a high-dive accident. In his childhood, a high-dive stunt gone wrong deprived him of his teeth and one of his eyes. His glass eye was sometimes used for comic effect, as in Laurel and Hardy's Me and My Pal (1933). Dunn also had a brief career in the 1920s as a Charlie Chaplin impersonator, in such films as Oh Shoot! (1923).
