Storyline

All are lost in a wreck off the coast of Persia, excepting John Bunnyhug. In an open boat he succeeds in reaching land, where he is captured and brought before the ruler of the country, who orders him to be kept a week and then beheaded. During John's imprisonment, the Sultan dies. His death throws the Sultana into a great grief, and a dervish priest is brought in to pacify her. With incantations and his mysterious art, he throws her into a trance, with the understanding that the first man she sees on awakening, is to be her future husband. Poor Bunnyhug is being brought before the regent, when he succeeds in snatching from the hands of his jailers, two swords, with which he cuts a wide swath, fleeing into the presence of the Sultana, who awakens and immediately falls into his arms, willing to be his and his alone.

Bunny's trials in attempting to become one of the faithful
11 December 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An amusing Bunnygraph, in which Flora Finch materially assists in the mirth. Bunny, shipwrecked, drifts ashore, and is put in a cell. He escapes as he is about to be arraigned, and in his wanderings through the palace comes upon the widowed Sultana, just awakening from a trance. As she has been informed she is to marry the first man she sees upon awakening, Bunny, of course, is the one. Bunny's trials in attempting to become one of the faithful, his failure, and his visit to the harem, under the escort of the Sultana, and his forcible withdrawal, in spite of his tearful entreaties, from the company of so many charming damsels, by the beard, too, are some of the laugh- provoking incidents. Bunny escapes on horseback; the journey must have been as painful to the horse as to his rider. - The Moving Picture World, July 13, 1912
