Biography: The cross eyed comedian of Vaudeville and silent films, his fame rivaled that of Charlie Chaplin. The cross eyes was a result of him playing a character with an eye affliction but the eye never went back into place. It was this ailment that would skyrocket Turpin to stardom. Not beggining his acting career until the age of 38, Turpin had his eyes insured with Lloyds of London in case they ever corrected themselves.
