Hunneh's Parents

Hortense Lapin, known by her stage name Hunneh Bunneh, keeps a portrait of her parents, Ornette and Yolanda Lapin, who perished in the tragic "Carrottes Flambes" accident at Maxim's. Hunneh was only 17 years old.

After the loss of her parents she emigrated to America, where she became a burlesque entertainer. It was there, in a theatre on Broadway, that she met her mentor, Cecil B. Meow.

Mr. Meow brought her to Hollywood where she became a Silent Screen Star.

She was a star, but not until I found her... I made her!
