British actress Flora Finch left the theater behind when she entered the infant American film industry in 1909. While at the Vitagraph Studios in Brooklyn, Finch was teamed with porcine star comedian John Bunny in a series of extremely popular domestic farces. Finch and John were among the first film actors to be identified by name on the screen, and as a result the audience demanded more and more "Bunnyfinches". When John Bunny died suddenly in 1915, Finch's career was finished, though she didn't know it at the time. She set up her own production company to produce short comedies, which were distinguished only by their vulgarity and lack of genuine humor. By the 1920s, Finch was playing minor roles in the feature films of others. Flora Finch hung on in the business as a bit player and extra until her death in 1940; her last role of any consequence was the fleeting part of "Maw", the bearded miner's wife, in Laurel and Hardy's Way Out West (1937).
