Although forgotten today, Detmar Poppen was a very active stage actor (see "other works"), appearing on Broadway since 1906. His final stage role was in the hit, "Revenge with Music" starring the fascinating (and scandalous) torch singer Libby Holman. He was signed on a per film contract basis to First National (Warner Brothers) in mid-1933, first appearing in Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle's final effort, the short, Tomalio (1933), which wasn't released until 5 months after the comedian's death.
